I have a confession to make: I don’t like eggnog… on its own at least. I would never drink a cup of eggnog. I do however love the taste of eggnog in cakes, cupcakes, muffins and donuts of course. And there is something about mini donuts, that make them taste even better than regular donuts. Maybe it is the fact that you won’t feel as guilty when you eat more than you should.
What better way to officially start the Christmas season than with a spicy yet sweet mini cake donut recipe. For my first recipe in my ‘recipe advent calendar’ I chose to bake mini gingerbread cake donuts with a brown sugar glaze to kick off the holiday season. The glaze adds a nice caramel flavor, complementing the gingerbread spices.
