  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 1 1/2 tsp rum
  • 2 Tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • Spiked Eggnog Icing (recipe below)
  • Sprinkles, optional

Spiked Eggnog Icing

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp unsalted butter, very soft
  • 2 Tbsp light rum
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4-5 Tbsp eggnog


  • Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees and lightly spray a doughnut pan with oil.
  • Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk eggs. Then add in and whisk together eggnog, rum, and melted butter, until combined.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combined, being very careful not to over-mix (that’s what causes the dense cake-y doughnuts).
  • Fill doughnut pan about 3/4 of the way with batter. I like to put batter in a Ziplock bag (or pastry bag), cut the corner off, and squeeze batter into doughnut pan.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until doughnuts are cooked through and springy to the touch. Let doughnuts cool in pan for a couple minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter, making sure to spray doughnut pan with oil again.
  • Once cooled, dip doughnuts in icing (I like to double dip) and top with sprinkles, if desired.
