The other day I was sitting on the couch watching The Walking Dead with my husband and thought….hmmm I should make an eggnog bundt cake. True story. Why this occurred to me at that moment, I have no idea. I think that it’s likely due to the fact that my brain is pretty much never quiet. That and I do everything I can not to pay attention to The Walking Dead because really, it’s a horrible show. It really is. Anyway. At least one good thing came out of it that night…an idea.
This idea…a delicious and warm spicy eggnog cake. With an eggnog sugar glaze.
So in the morning I set to baking and made this cake come to life. I essentially made my coconut bundt cake, but adjusted it for the eggnog. And once it was done I of course covered said cake in an eggnog sugar glaze then shared it with my 5 year old for lunch. Because why not? Some days just call for cake in the middle of the day. 😉
Eggnog Bundt Cake with Eggnog Sugar Glaze
Eggnog Bundt Cake
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- pinch of nutmeg more if you like
- 1 cup eggnog
- 1 cup icing sugar confectioners sugar
- 1/4 cup eggnog
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- splash of vanilla
Eggnog Bundt Cake:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a Bundt pan by buttering the pan and lightly dusting with flour. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
Add the eggs, one at a time.
Then add vanilla, and mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.
To the butter mix, add 1/3 of the flour mix, then 1/2 of the eggnog. Repeat until all combined.
Pour into the prepared Bundt pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
While the cake is baking, mix together the glaze ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
Putting it all together:
Once the cake has baked, let it cool for about 10 minutes in the pan, then turn the cake out onto a plate, and drizzle on the eggnog glaze.
