Christmas Breakfast by the Kitchy Kitchen

We're all about traditions this holiday season and having breakfast together on Christmas Day is definitely one of them! Nothing too extraordinary because we like to save room for dinner of course but it's nice to share in a morning treat after opening gifts. So here's a recipe that screams tradition with its staple ingredient. You guessed it! Good ol' eggnog; a rich, chilled, sweetened, creamy dairy-based beverage that you will find in homes across the country throughout the month of December. And thanks to the Kitchy Kitchen, you can now enjoy this seasonal treat... in doughnut form!

Eggnog donut recipe for the holidays:

That's right, eggnog doughnuts! This recipe is based off of a vintage milk Vermont-style doughnut. No matter when you decide to make them, these treats are sure not to disappoint!

For the donuts
  • 2 cups of flour
  • ¾ teaspoon soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • ½ cup buttermilk
For topping
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
1. Sift dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients and stir until a rough dough forms. Sprinkle your counter with flour and knead together the dough, just until it forms a smooth ball. Roll with a rolling pin to about ½ an inch thick and cut with a doughnut cookie cutter.

2. Heat up 4 inches of vegetable oil (traditionally lard) to 375F. Add the doughnuts, in batches so they have plenty of room, and cook for about 3 minutes, or until a deep golden brown, and flip, cooking for another 3 minutes. Immediately toss into cinnamon sugar mixture to coat. Enjoy warm.

The perfect donut recipe for the holiday season

We hope this is something you can incorporate into Christmas morning from this year forward! Devour the details of tradition and enjoy these eggnog doughnuts with your family. Happy holidays!
