Eggnog Donuts–Yum!

The week between Christmas and New Years is a week of celebrations with family and friends for my family.  Lots of visiting back and forth, and lots of good times.  Sometimes the kids have sleepovers with cousins or friends.  I have found that homemade donuts are a great addition to these visits.  If the kids are old enough, they can handle the glazing of the donuts and really enjoy it.

All I have to do is whip the donut batter together and set the timer.  Of course, one more thing–we get to use up the eggnog so I won’t drink all of it!  I love the flavors of the holidays but I’m also glad when they are gone and I’m not tempted for one more taste of anything!

Since I started doing all these gluten-free recipes, I think the donuts have been the best surprise.  Easy to make and so tasty!  Here is the recipe I used.

Eggnog Donuts--Yum!
  • 1 cup Baking Free™ gluten-free All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoons salted butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup full fat eggnog
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Eggnog
  • Dusting of nutmeg
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray the donut pan with baking spray. Set aside
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Cream the sugar and butter with a mixer until light colored and well mixed.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed sugar and mix well.
  5. Split the batter evenly between the six donut molds--fill each ⅔ full.
  6. Bake at 325 degrees for 12-13 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack and cool completely.
  7. Mix powdered sugar and eggnog until smooth. Once donuts are cool, dip each into the glaze and return to rack.
  8. Sprinkle nutmeg over the tops. Makes 6 donuts. This recipe can be doubled to make 1 dozen donuts.
