It’s been raining for the last two days. Do you know what that means? That means that all of our snow is gone. That means that we might not have a White Christmas!

It’s just not the same when there isn’t snow for Christmas! So to make the thought of not having snow for Christmas not so miserable, I’ll be eating these cinnamon sugar eggnog donuts with a mug of eggnog.

Okay, not really. I’ll just be eating these donut muffins because they taste good.

Baked Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins l

Instead of baking these into mini donuts, I decided to take a shortcut and just scoop the batter into a mini muffin tin.

The batter baked up perfectly into little donut muffins.

They are finished off by a dip in melted butter and a roll in a cinnamon and nutmeg sugar mixture.

The best finishing touch!

Dip them in a big mug of eggnog as part of a delicious Christmas brunch.

Or, since they are so easy to make, eat a batch while you prepare for Christmas day and then make another batch for the big day!

This easy recipe for Cinnamon Sugar Eggnog Donut Muffins is filled with eggnog and warm, cozy spices!


For the Muffins

  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 1/3 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/3 Cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 Cup eggnog

For the Cinnamon Sugar Coating**

  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Lightly spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together butter and eggnog.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  5. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin. Fill about 3/4 full. I used about a rounded teaspoon of batter per cup.
  6. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until edges just start to turn golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a few crumbs.*** Move to a wire rack to cool.
  7. Stir together sugar and spices. Dip tops of muffins in melted butter, then dip in sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining donut muffins.
  8. Enjoy!
  9. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.


**This makes enough for a light coating of sugar. If you prefer a more generous coating, double these ingredients.

***Because the size of mini muffin tins can vary greatly, you may find that you ned to bake your donut muffins longer. The best way to tell if the donut muffins are done is to test them with a toothpick and see if there are just a few crumbs sticking.
