Baked Eggnog Doughnuts with Rum Glaze

Makes 24 doughnuts


Eggnog doughnuts

  • 2 C flour
  • 2/3 C sugar
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 t freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 C eggnog
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 C vegetable oil
  • 1 t vanilla

Rum Glaze

  • 1/3 C eggnog
  • 3 C powdered sugar
  • 1 t rum extract OR 1 T rum
  • Freshly grated nutmeg for dusting


Heat oven to 425. Thoroughly grease nonstick doughnut pans.

In one bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In a second bowl, whisk together eggnog, eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla.

Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Transfer doughnut batter to a plastic bag, seal and snip the corner. Pipe batter into prepared pan. Fill wells 2/3 full.

Bake for 10 minutes, doughnuts will rise and appear lightly golden brown. Set on cooling rack and cool completely.

To make glaze, use a hand mixer to combine the powdered sugar, eggnog and rum extract. Dip doughnuts halfway into glaze and return to cooling rack to set. Drizzle with any leftover glaze and sprinkle with nutmeg.

Recipe from a scrap of a magazine from a waiting room.  I’m not sure which magazine… sorry!
