Tis’ the season for some eggnog! Spread the holiday cheer with these spiked eggnog doughnuts. Since it’s only the beginning of December I have been “trying” to not go overboard on all the holiday drinks and desserts I see at the store…but I couldn’t say no to a little bit of eggnog, I mean I waited all year for this stuff!
Matthew however is not super into eggnog so I came up with these doughnuts to try to convince him to give eggnog another chance. While I am not too sure he will indulge in a cup of eggnog by itself, he did say he really liked the doughnuts and would gladly eat them again… So i’ll take that as a baking success!!! I loved these doughnuts so much so that I can easily say these will make another debut on christmas morning with a hot cup of coffee.
Rich and creamy spiced eggnog, rum, and additional warm spices blended throughout a moist yet tender crumb. Topped with a sweet eggnog glaze with a hint of rum.
