Top Utah lifestyle blog, Among the Young, features a family favorite: Egg Nog Pound Cake with a creamy egg nog custard. Click here now for all the info!!
EGG NOG week continues! Today, I’m showing our Egg Nog pound cake – it starts with a box mix and adds a hint of egg nog and nutmeg. The result? MOIST and delicious.
This recipe is a family FAVORITE! The love of Egg Nog runs deep in our house and when I make this cake it never lasts long. It’s gone SO FAST!!
As I went to make this recipe I saw the pictures and thought, “WOOF!!” How my personal photography style has changed over the years!
Ok ok, I’ll stop! But really. I mean – I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to eat the “before” cake, but I’ll definitely eat the “after” cake. Who am I kidding? I’ll eat all the cake.
Egg Nog Pound Cake
I found this recipe in Taste of Home Cake Mix Creations and it’s a favorite – every year.
Plus, I’ve perfected it and made it my own.
It’s moist (YES – that word is OK as long as you’re referring to cake).
It’s packed full of flavor.
Basically it SCREAMS Christmas. It’s a family favorite!
Plus, the joy of a bundt cake is that it’s super inviting.
Egg Nog Cake with Custard
The cream is delicious and totally NOT necessary, but it’s also light, fresh, and adds and additional Egg Nog-iness to this cake.
I’m a huge fan of bundt cakes because they are GREAT for parties. I don’t understand it, but when I take other cakes to parties people are always afraid to cut the cake. Does anyone understand that? It happens EVERY TIME and I don’t get it.
My siblings and I have always LOVED pound cake because my mom makes such a fabulous one (it’s her Cinnamon Sour Cream cake and WHOA), but this egg nog pound cake is right up there. Again, it’s just so moist and delicious that it’s hard to say no!
