Eggnog Donuts

The second recipe for my holiday baking, eggnog donuts! I was looking for something sweet, fast, and that didn’t require butter as I was out and hadn’t gotten to the store yet! I had some eggnog sitting in my fridge and have seen some seriously yummy looking recipes involving eggnog so I took a browse on Pinterest to see what I could find. These eggnog donuts from Mandy’s Recipe Box checked out all three boxes: sweet, fast, and no butter required!

Have you invested in a donut pan? I seriously recommend buying one so you can give these donuts a try! I bought mine from Bed, Bath and Beyond (they carry the Wilton brand) as I couldn’t find one anywhere else and wasn’t wanting to order online but I am sure there are several options available online!

These donuts are soft, the perfect amount of sweet, and great to add to your holiday baking collection. Oh, and super fast to make! You can leave them with just the simple eggnog glaze or dress them up a little with some festive sprinkles!
