Made this cake tonight. I am a novice cook and followed the directions exactly as written. The cake was done in one hour and came out perfectly. The house smells as delicious as this cake tastes!

I made this for the first time today, and this is my new favorite cake!! Of course I made some changes...but nothing major. I didn't have any eggnog so I had to make my own. I added spiced rum to the eggnog. I also had four bananas that I needed to get rid of, so I probably put closer to 2 cups of banana. For the frosting, I did not have any powdered sugar, so I made my own frosting with 1/3c. butter, 3/4c. brown sugar, 8 oz. cream cheese, a splash of rum and some almond extract. The finished product was a dense, moist, rich cake with great flavors (sweetness, banana, spice, cream)and a very light, whipped frosting...this was absolutely AMAZING!

I made this cake exactly as written. Bake at 275 degrees for one hour. At the end of the hour it was not close to being done, so I turned the oven up to 325 and baked another 8 minutes. Each oven is different, so maybe your oven will bake it as written. For taste alone, I would have given it 5 stars! I could not even wait for it to be frosted! It was moist and so very good. I would use a butter cream frosting instead of cream cheese frosting, but that is personal preference. This is a keeper!

I was looking for a recipe to use up the after Christmas eggnog and came across this one. Boy, this exceeded our expectations! It was moist and landed an amazing flavor from the eggnog. I'll definitely be making this again!

Just like most reviewers, I was happy to find a way to use up my eggnog, the flavor of which was not very discernible. The cake was like a very sweet banana bread. It puffed up a lot in the oven and the center was moist while the edges were dryer. The icing was the best part, I used just shy of the three cups sugar that was called for and I could almost eat it by itself. I took it to a potluck and people said they liked it, especially the icing, but there was more left at the end than the other desserts I usually take.

I rated this five stars because it was so easy and tasty. I was searching for a recipe to utilize our leftover holiday eggnog, and found this. My six year old and I made this cake and brought it to a new year party. The reviews were all positive. It needed more than an hour at 325 though. I gave it another ten minutes. The best part was getting everyone to guess the mystery ingredient!

I made the cake part of this recipe for a party tonight! It was a huge success - many compliments. I used a storebought cream cheese frosting instead of the one described here, though.
