Eggnog Bundt Cake with Eggnog Frosting Recipe
The holidays bring out the joy in all of us as we gather with our family and friends through out the season! It’s the time of year we all tend to let our hearts open a little wider and let go of some of the business of life to connect and make memories around the holiday table! I know so many other aspects of the season seem like they bring some craziness with them but I hope you love making this cake and LOVE sharing it with the loved ones in your life.
Tips and Tricks to make Eggnog Bundt Cake with Eggnog Frosting Recipe
• Get a good bundt cake pan~ I love this bundt cake pan it’s nothing fancy but it works great! Baker’s Secret 1114421 Essentials Fluted Tube/Bundt Pan
• Coat the pan really well with cooking spray being sure to get all the creases.
• Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar generously, then rotate the pan over the sink and make sure it’s covered all the surface area and over the sink in case some spills.
• If there’s a place where the cooking spray missed it, you will know it because the mixture won’t stick there; in that case just cooking spray a little and re-coat with mixture.
• When turning cake out from pan; place the cooling rack on top of the pan then slowly turn the rack and pan upside down together and at the same time, allow to finish cooling.
• Enjoy every bite of your Eggnog Bundt Cake with Eggnog Frosting
This recipe has been such a favorite with our CWR readers for many years and we love hearing all about your cooking and baking happy moments.
Check out these awesome tips from a reader for an alternate way to make the frosting:
I use 1/2 C. of powdered sugar, 1 T. of butter almost melted, 1/8 C of eggnog,1/2 tsp. vanilla, and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. I whisk everything together and drizzle it on the top and let it drip down where it may. I put the cake in the refrigerator until the frosting is chilled and then slice the cake.
