Merry Christmas Eve!!! Its really hard to believe it’s actually Christmas time, I swear it was just August. Regardless- I am super pumped for the next 2 days of festivities (Joe’s family today and mine tomorrow)

So much food is about to be consumed. Same for you? Be sure to move people- you’ll feel 10x better if you do SOME sort of physical activity rather than sit like a bump on a log stuffing your face. I’ll be earning my eats this Am.

Okay, done harping on that…Now, let’s get to the good stuff.

Today I am sharing with you all a recipe that can help you out of the “What the heck do I make for Christmas ( or even Christmas Eve!) Breakfast?” conundrum. 

The answer is Glazed Rum & Egg Nog Donuts. 


You COULD take out the rum, but I’d encourage you not to. The glaze has the perfect amount in it, you can definitely taste it, but it isn’t so strong you’ll be walking wonky. 

I love how cake-y these donuts are, and the flavors come through and mingle so nicely. 




Glazed Rum & Egg Nog Donuts

Yield: 7 donuts
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 22 minutes
Total Time: 27 minutes

Holiday donuts everyone will love!


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp rum
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup egg nog (I used Silk brand)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp rum
  • 2 tbsp egg nog


    Preheat oven to 350 and grease and lightly flour a donut pan.

Whisk together egg, butter, rum, applesauce, vanilla, and egg nog. Once combined add in sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine remaining donut ingredients, stirring with a fork. 

Add dry ingredient mixture to the wet mixture, stirring until you have a thick, uniform batter.

Fill donut pan.

Bake for ~22 minutes, or until golden and a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow to cool through.

While donuts are cooling make the glaze. 

Start by placing powdered sugar into a small bowl, adding rum and 1 tbsp egg nog. Stir. 

You want your glaze to be the consistency of paste. Go ahead and slowly add 2nd tbs. 

Once donuts are cooled through, glaze & enjoy!
