This is the first cake I’ve ever made using eggnog. I must say I love it, and the wonderful eggnog glaze makes it even better!!! (really happy face)

This is great for a breakfast, your Christmas brunch or whenever you’re hungry and in need for something sweet and special.

I hope you like it, my happy pixels.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup homemade eggnog (you’ll find the recipe here)

To make the glaze you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon eggnog (see recipe above)

 

Directions:

Preheat oven at 176ΒΊC

Sift together flour, salt and baking powder; set aside.

Cream butter until smooth, add in sugar until all combined. Beat until light and cream and colour pales.

Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well before each addition.

Alternating the flour mixture and eggnog, starting and ending with flour, add in both. Mix until smooth.

Pour batter into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 50-55′. Allow to cool completely.

To make the glaze, whisk both ingredients together until desired consistency. Spoon over the cooled cake; let glaze set up for a few hours before eating or storing.
