Eggnog Donuts With White Chocolate Glaze

by jerseygirl on December 11, 2012 · 8 comments

I always have a quart of eggnog sitting in my fridge during holiday season. I don’t drink eggnog but I buy it for guests. My brother loves eggnog so I usually keep some for him. The problem is I forget that we have it and it sits in the refrigerator long after my guests leave. Since I hate to waste anything, I just can’t pour a perfectly good container of eggnog down the drain. And no matter  how much rum I add to it, eggnog just doesn’t seem drinkable to me. I’m not sure why but I have no problem with the taste of eggnog in baked goods.

So after finding the leftover eggnog in the fridge, these baked doughnuts were invented. I love making them because they bake up quickly and require only a few other ingredients. My family doesn’t like to drink eggnog either but they didn’t mind having a batch of these for breakfast.

I made a small batch of six doughnuts but the recipe can easily be doubled.  I will have no problem using the leftover eggnog after Christmas.
