Ingredients
Donut
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp espresso powder (optional, but it brings out the flavor of chocolate)
  • 1 egg
  • 6 Tbsp half & half
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp butter, melted
Eggnog Glaze
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 Tbsp eggnog (depending upon how thick or thin you want your glaze)
  • nutmeg, ground or freshly grated for sprinkling (optional)
Instructions
Donuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a donut pan with baking spray and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and espresso powder together until well combined. Set aside.
  3. Whisk the egg and half & half together. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add the wet ingredients. Mix until combined (batter will be fairly thick).
  4. Add in sour cream, vanilla extract, and butter; mix until well combined.
  5. Pour batter into greased donut pan, filling each donut cavity about 3/4 of the way full (this batter can make about 7-8 donuts).
  6. Bake for 8-9 minutes, or until the donut 'springs' back when touched. Allow to cool a few minutes before removing from the pan.
Glaze
  1. Whisk powdered sugar and 3 Tbsp of glaze together. If the glaze is too thick, add in the remaining Tbsp of eggnog.
  2. Dip each donut, face down, into the glaze. Sprinkle with nutmeg, if desired, and allow glaze to set, about 10 minutes.
  3. Enjoy!
