Eggnog. Most people either love it, or hate it.
It’s one of those flavors that seems to pop up around Thanksgiving and sneak into those tasty baked goods.
I am definitely on Team Eggnog. Although I can’t drink too much of it because of its rich flavor, I love to sip on a glass during the holidays.
I also love using it in baked goods, such as these White Chocolate Dipped Eggnog Cookies. I made these cookies last Christmas and they quickly became a popular holiday recipe on Pumpkin ‘N Spice. Even if you don’t like eggnog, these cookies have just a subtle hint of eggnog flavor, while the warm spices and white chocolate make up the rest.
And then there are these Glazed Eggnog Donuts. These donuts bake up soft, fluffy and are filled with a sweet eggnog and hints of nutmeg. They’re easy to whip up and make the perfect breakfast or dessert for the holidays!
Everyone loves donuts, so now you can enjoy the classic flavor of eggnog packed into a delicious treat.
And even if you don’t like eggnog, I guarantee you’ll love these donuts. The flavor is subtle and not overpowering, so you taste the sweetness from the eggnog and warm spices from the nutmeg. Combine that with a delicious eggnog glaze, and these donuts were made for you.
And like most of my recipes, these Glazed Eggnog Donuts are a breeze to whip up! These donuts can be made in one bowl, which means it’s easier on clean-up, and less dishes. And that’s always a win-win situation!
To start, you’ll mix the dry ingredients together and then slowly beat in the wet ingredients. Then, spoon the batter into a large ziploc bag and snip the lower corner of the bag. It makes it easy to pipe into donut pan, with less mess than using a spoon.
Pop the pans into the oven and let it work its magic. When the donuts are baked and cooled, it’s time to prepare the sweet glaze. Simple whisk together some powdered sugar, eggnog, vanilla extract, and a dash of nutmeg. Dip the tops of the donuts into the glaze and then let set.
One bite of these Glazed Eggnog Donuts and you’ll love the sweet taste and soft texture. These goodies are perfect to enjoy throughout the holiday season and will be the hit of your breakfast or dessert table!
