Christmas Morning Eggnog Cinnamon Donuts

These donuts are UNREAL. I don't think there's a better word to describe them. For warning they aren't one bit healthy but hey indulging on christmas morning is necessary! You guys know i'm all about balance so these little sweet flakey buttery guys are made with whole wheat flour and sugar in the raw, to try and minimize as much processing of the ingredients as possible so that's a win in my book. Definitely better than bleached white flour and white granulate sugar. Eggnog Donuts


These donuts are baked instead of fried in oil so that is a little added bonus. I have made donuts both ways and I actually prefer baking instead of frying to get the perfect thick and hearty donut taste. Also a plus these took 10 minutes to prepare and only include 7 ingredients.

BL Christmas Eggnog Donuts

BL Eggnog Cinnamon Donuts


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup organic sugar in the raw
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup vanilla eggnog
  • 5 tbsp butter, melted
  • powdered sugar


  1. In a large mixing bowl combine whole wheat flour, organic sugar in the raw, baking powder, cinnamon & kosher salt. Whisk to combine.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk egg, eggnog & melted butter.
  3. Make a hole in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients in. Begin folding the wet ingredients into the dry with a rubber spatula. Fold ONLY until the ingredients are combined, no longer.
  4. Turn oven on to 400 degrees and walk away from batter. Allowing it to sit {DO NOT TOUCH OR STIR ANYMORE} while waiting for oven to heat.
  5. When the oven is ready place a plastic sandwich bag into a coffee mug. Fill with batter. Twist top to seal {like a pastry bag} & cut a tip into the corner of the bag allowing for the batter to dispense.
  6. Heavily grease donut pan and fill each cavity 3/4 full {this is important, the donuts do not need as much batter as you think they will} with batter.
  7. Bake the donuts in over for 8-10 minutes. Every oven is different but I cooked mine for 7-8 minutes and they were perfect. Donuts are done when you touch them lightly and the top bounced back.
  8. When the donuts are ready remove them from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes in pan. Remove from pan on to cooling rack.
  9. Sprinkle with powdered sugar nice cooled completely.
  10. ENJOY!

blissfully lively donuts

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
