Ingredients

Baked Eggnog Donuts

  • 1 cup cake flour -or all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup eggnog
  • 1 egg -I used 'large'
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter -melted
  • 1.5 tsp rum extract -or vanilla extract
  • sprinkles -garnish (optional)
  • baking spray -to grease pan

Icing Sugar Glaze

  • 1 cup icing sugar

Instructions

Baked Eggnog Donuts

  • Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Lay to one side and preheat oven to 425 F.
  • In a bowl whisk eggnog with egg, melted butter and rum extract.  
  • Pour eggnog mixture over flour mixture, whisking until combined.
  • Spray 6 unit donut pan with baking spray and distribute donut mixture into.  Bake 6-7 minutes or until wooden skewer comes out clean when inserted.  Let cool completely before glazing.
  • When cool, invert donuts, one at a time, into icing sugar mixture.  Place on wire rack and garnish with sprinkles immediately before icing sugar dries.  Enjoy!

Icing Sugar Glaze

  • Whisk all ingredients until smooth.

Notes

  • Cake flour was used here, but all purpose will work in a pinch.
  • Rum extract was used, but if you don't have that on hand, no worries! Use vanilla extract.
  • Regular eggnog was  used (aka not 'light').  Use whichever variety you prefer.
  • If you want to add another element of flavour to these baked donuts, brown the butter.
  • Let the donuts cool completely before glazing. Otherwise, the glaze will 'melt' into the donut.
  • Garnish with sprinkles as soon as you ice the donuts so those suckers will stick.
  • These donuts are best enjoyed the day they are made.
