THIS WAS SPECTACULAR! I needed to make something festive for a Christmas potluck at work, and a cake seemed pretty easy to transport. I chose eggnog because that flavor isn't my favorite and I didn't want to be tempted to eat a TON of it. I cut a piece to bring a coworker and noticed how moist it looked, and had to try some myself. PEOPLE, this has got to be one of the most delicious and professional tasting cakes ever. It has a strong but delicious and rich eggnog flavor. It was very easy too aside from the weird geletin in water thing which I found to be clumpy but mixed into the whipped cream anyway. I sprinkled mine with some color since it was white white white. If you are a fan of eggnog, do NOT pass this one up! My house still smells delicious days later too!
I was so disappointed with this recipe. Followed the recipe to a T. The cake was just ok. Tasted like regular boxed mix to me. The filling was not spreadable at all and the icing was beyond sweet. Add super sweet icing on top of a bland cake with thick looking filling and you get something that just isn't eatable. Maybe a kid with a sweet tooth will like this, but it won't be on my table again. Sorry.
I submitted this recipe, but forgot to tell you that you can put it in a 9 by 13 inch pan, also. Make sure that you use a deep 9 by 13 because there is a lot of filling and toppings. Enjoy!
This recipe was really great! I did make some alterations - I used a white cake mix instead of yellow, I didn't have rum extract, I used vanilla instead, I also used oil instead of butter. I baked in a 10x13 pan and didn't use the filling. For the icing, I used 500ml of whipping cream, 1cup of icing sugar, 1/2cup of eggnog & 1 pkg instant vanilla pudding. This cake was super moist & even my husband who doesn't like eggnog loved this cake. I will definitely make this again!
I went looking for a recipe to use up my Christmas eggnog, and was very happy I found this one. This recipe is very easy to make, since it starts with a cake mix. In no time at all it's in the oven. Filling and frosting are also easy. The only thing I would recommend is that there is too much batter for 8-inch pans. Next time I will use 9-inch.
I highly recommend this cake.
For an easy icing just mix eggnog and powdered sugar...sprinkle nutmeg over and voila!
Great recipe for eggnog lovers. Makes a lot of filling so used it as frosting as well.
Wow o wow o wow..... First let me start off if you are an eggnog lover then this is the cake for you! I followed the recipe to the T except I changed the rum extract to 1 teaspoon instead of a half a teaspoon. This cake is extremely rich in flavor and oh so decadent.
I made this for my great uncles birthday and everyone raved about it! I was told I must make it again. I am going to be making this for our church Christmas party this weekend.
Thanks for an awesome recipe!
