Happy Holidays Egg Nog Cake By Kelli Wilkins
Happy Holidays Egg Nog Cake
This easy (and delicious) egg nog cake is made from a boxed cake mix.
1 (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix (with pudding in the mix)
1⁄4 cup vegetable oil, (adjust according to package directions, if necessary)
2 eggs, (adjust according to package directions)
1 1⁄2 cups eggnog, (substitute for water and adjust according to package directions)
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg (add more to taste if you want a stronger flavor)
Pre-heat oven and oil/grease your cake pan, so the cake doesn’t stick. (A Bundt pan works best for this recipe – or you could make cupcakes!)
Prepare cake mix according to the directions on the box – substituting the egg nog for the water. Add ground nutmeg to the mix and blend well.
Bake cake according to the package directions. Let cake cool before adding frosting or other toppings.
You can top the cake with vanilla frosting, thawed whipped topping, or make an egg nog glaze. (I used frosting for my cake.)
Egg Nog Glaze Ingredients:
2 tablespoons butter, softened
3 tablespoons eggnog
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ to 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, if desired
In a medium bowl, combine ingredients, adding enough egg nog for desired consistency. Drizzle over the cake and let set. If the glaze is too runny, add more powdered sugar.
