How to Make Glazed Eggnog Donuts
Mix the eggnog and cake mix together in a mixing bowl. You can use yellow or white cake mix in this recipe. Spiced cake mix would be good if you can find it!
The batter is thick, but this is normal.
Next, spoon the batter into a piping bag or a ziptop bag. Cut off the end of the bag, and squeeze the batter into a donut pan.
You can spoon the batter into the donut pan if you want. But, the piping method is way easier!
The donuts take 10 minutes to bake. While they’re baking, you can mix the glaze.
When they’re cool enough to remove from the pan, dip the donuts into the glaze. Holiday sprinkles are optional, but so pretty!
