Happy Holidays! I’m Judy from I’m Bored Let’s Go here today with a delicious Eggnog Bundt Cake recipe for you. A delicious cake for the holidays!
For me nothing says winter time and the holidays quite as much as eggnog does. I always look forward to eggnog making an appearance in the grocery stores this time of the year. It’s one of my favorite wintertime holiday treats…well, besides fudge and peppermint bark! I love this sweet, thick, creamy, eggy drink! While homemade eggnog is fantastic, don’t worry, you don’t need to make homemade eggnog (unless you want to) for this recipe. Just grab a carton of it next time you’re at the market, store-bought eggnog is perfect for baking with, not to mention quick and easy!
I love to doctor up cake mixes for making bundt cakes so when I saw this pin from Cooking with Ruthie I knew it would be one I had to try. This Eggnog Bundt Cake is so moist and is really tasty. The frosting similar to a butter cream frosting but made thinner with additional eggnog. The looser frosting, while thicker than a glaze, will still drip down the sides of the bundt cake. For the finishing touch I grated some fresh nutmeg on top!
