Eggnog Poundcake

Here's a fantastic recipe for eggnog poundcake which will surely be appreciated if you bake a few loaves for Christmas gifts. Want to make it even more festive? Drizzle loaves with a simple powdered sugar icing and sprinkle with crushed candy canes. What a beautiful gift!

Eggnog Pound Cake


1 (16-oz.) package pound cake mix
1 1/4 cups eggnog
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350°. Beat all ingredients together at low speed with an electric mixer until blended. Increase speed to medium, and beat 2 minutes. Pour into a lightly greased 9- x 5-inch loaf pan.
2. Bake at 350° for 1 hour to 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour).
