Baked Eggnog Donuts

There is nothing that screams the holiday season more than eggnog! I love creating fun treats to share with family and friends using this seasonal ingredient! In the past, I have always made my no-bake Eggnog Bars, but this year I am all about these incredibly simple baked eggnog donuts. 

I love this recipe for so many reasons! 

  • It’s easy to make
  • Takes less than 5 minutes to prep
  • Can easily be doubled
  • Super festive for every occasion during the holiday season!

How to make Baked Eggnog Donuts

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and prepare a donut pan
  • In a large bowl, mix together eggnog, rum extract, egg,  oil, and sugar. Once combined, add the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Place batter into a piping bag and cut off a small corner. Pipe dough into your prepared donut pan. 
  • Bake for 10 to 13 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean
  • Prepare the glaze by mixing together the powdered sugar with 2 Tbsp. eggnog; you can add more to reach your desired thickness for the glaze. However be sure, as you don’t want it too thick.
  • While the donuts are still warm, dip donuts into glaze and place on a wire rack.  Feel free to add sprinkles to make them more festive!
    Enjoy!  ☺

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • If you prefer to not use rum extract you can replace it with vanilla extract without altering the flavor too much. 
  • You want to make sure that you spray your pan to prevent sticking. 
  • If you find yourself without a piping bag you can use a Ziploc bag and cut off one of the corners to pipe into the mold. You can also carefully spoon the dough into the mold as well. 
  • You can easily double the recipe to have even more eggnog donuts to enjoy! 

Storage

You will want to store your leftover donuts in an airtight container at room temperature. For these eggnog donuts, I prefer a Ziploc bag to seal in the freshness. They will stay fresh for up to 2 days.

Freezer

If you prefer to freeze donuts to enjoy later, you will want to freezer them prior to adding the glaze. 

To freeze, place them on a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment on top of it. 

Add the donuts, ensure that they are not touching. Place in the freezer for about 1-2 hours. Once frozen, add your donuts to a freezer-safe bag. These will last for about 3 months when properly stored. 

Let your donuts thaw at room temperature. This will take a couple of hours. Once thawed, mix the glaze and dip your donuts, and place them on a wire rack to set.
