Eggnog Doughnuts – Christmas Making and Baking

I bought some eggnog to make eggnog bread.  Since I had some of the eggnog left, I decided to find a recipe to make eggnog doughnuts.  This recipe is moist and delicious.  It paired well with my coffee flavored with my peppermint mocha creamer.  It would also be delicious with my eggnog creamer.

In order to make the doughnuts, you need a doughnut pan.

  8. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 to 13 minutes.
  9. Transfer to cooling rack.
  10. Glaze the doughnuts once they are completely cooled.  Or if you can’t wait, pour the glaze over the doughnuts.  (I might have done the later.)

Glaze:

Stars of recipe:

  • 1/2 powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. eggnog
  • 2 tsp. nutmeg

Steps:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the powder sugar and eggnog until smooth.
  2. Either dip the doughnuts into the glaze or pour over the doughnuts.

This recipe made 6 full size doughnuts.  You could probably make 12 mini doughnuts with this recipe.  You need to store the doughnuts in the fridge.

Happy Eating,
