Mini Eggnog Donuts Recipe

Mini Eggnog Donuts Recipe

So last week I bough a small jug of eggnog. I actually don’t like eggnog. I mean I like the flavours, but as a beverage, nope. But apparently elves like eggnog and since we currently have one residing in our home, I got eggnog. But there is only so much an elf can drink so I have quite a bit leftover and nobody else who really wants to drink it. Thankfully, eggnog makes a wonderful holiday baking ingredient. The only question is – what should I bake? I was thinking about using it in snickerdoodle cookies. And when I started thinking about the combination of eggnog with sugar and cinnamon I though what about donuts? I have a mini donut pan that seldom gets used so I dug around and found it and whipped up these decadent little eggnog donuts, covered with a sweet glaze and then dipped in cinnamon and sugar. I think I should probably leave one for the elf tonight.

Ingredients
Donuts
  • ½ cup of eggnog
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp of vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons of oil
  • ¼ cup of white sugar
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • 3.4 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 cup of flour
Glaze
  • ½ cup of icing sugar

Topping
  • ¼ cup of white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Spray your donut pan with cooking spray.
  3. In a medium bowl mix together the eggnog, egg, vanilla, oil and sugar.
  4. Mix in the salt, baking powder and flour until just combined.
  5. Fill the cavities in your donut pan half full. I find piping the batter in is the easiest.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. While the donuts are baking make your glaze by mixing together the eggnog and icing sugar. If it mixture is too thick add a bit more eggnog.
  8. In a separate bowl mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  9. While the donuts are still warm, dip one side into the glaze and the immediately into the sugar cinnamon mixture.
  10. Set on a wire rack to cool and let the glaze set.

  1. If I were the elf living at your place, I’d never go back to the North Pole.
