Eggnog Donuts

It's time to start baking! And planning holiday menus! And adding elastic to all your clothes! Seriously, though, this is such a fun time of the year to try new things and show love for family and friends by baking delicious treats. And these eggnog donuts are just the thing.

And really, donuts aren't so bad if they're BAKED, am I right? These have eggnog in both the batter and the glaze, and they are a delicious thing to wake up to, or to have mid-morning or mid-afternoon coffee with, or for a bedtime snack with a big glass of milk. The possibilities are nearly endless!

These are wonderful as an addition to brunch. I served them with an egg bake and they were both a big hit. But nothing beats homemade donuts. If you don't have a donut tin, I'm sure you could find one easily and have it delivered to your house within the week. I'm just sayin'. No excuses. Make these donuts.

Eggnog Donuts

2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup Eggnog


1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup Eggnog
Nutmeg for sprinkling

For the donuts, mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

Cream sugar and butter until smooth. Add egg and eggnog and mix well. Gradually add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.

Pour batter into greased donut tins, filling each mold about 2/3 full. Bake at 325 for 12-13 minutes. Transfer donuts to a cooling rack and cool completely.

For the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar and eggnog until no lumps remain. Dip donuts into glaze and return, right side up, to rack. Grate fresh nutmeg over the top, or sprinkle dried nutmeg on top. Makes 12 donuts.

  3. Is it possible to drool on your blog through the internet, if so, I'm doing it right now.
    Dropped by from #InspireMeMOnday (Hey Janice, you know how to connect bloggers, you're the hostess with the mostess, although my waist might not like you after these donuts!!! lol), and very glad to be here, luckily I can type while drooling (and possibly eating eggnog donuts, we'll have to wait and see). Thank you, off to share so others can drool too.
    Hope the week ahead treats you kindly. :)

  4. These look like a great holiday breakfast treat!

  5. Eggnog is relatively new to England. I loved it when I was in Canada, but it's taken nearly 25 years for me to be able to get it over here. Sara, your recipe is such a great way for me to introduce it to my fellow Brits - and to encourage them to ask for it in their grocery stores. Love your delicious Eggnog Donuts and I'm featuring them at the Hearth and Soul Party this week. Thank you so much for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party!

  6. Sara, your Eggnog Donuts look amazing, can't wait to have one of these! Hope you are having a great week and thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday!
    Come Back Soon
