2 1/4 cups
heavy whipping cream
Simple but just what I was looking for in a cooked eggnog. I made it the first time with the cream but it was almost too thick. I left out the cream and added rum flavoring. It's just like the store bought eggnog that I love but at less than 1/4 the price.
Some tips that made this easier for me:
Cook this over medium heat in a double boiler (or in my case a metal bowl over a pot of boiling water). This will make the cooking take a little longer but will all but eliminate the risk of curdling. The target temperature should be 170F. This is hot enough to kill any bacteria but not hot enough to make scrambled eggs.
The flavor was great (especially with a cinnamon sprinkled on top!) I was looking for a recipe like my mom made when we were growing up, but being pregnant wanted something without raw eggs. Cooking the eggs worked good (Thanks for the recommendation to strain the eggs.) , but the finished product was way too thick! Don't whip up the cream. Maybe I whipped it up too much... but when I drank it it made me feel bloated. Go easy on the whipping and it might be great.
What a super simple but superb recipe! The only things I did different is to strain the egg mix before you chill it (to get out those lovely membranes). I also stirred in 1 tsp. of nutmeg before serving. Shake the nog up every time before serving and be careful about heating the egg mix, or you'll get a bowl of scrambled eggs in milk (like I did :)).
This was my first attempt at making eggnog and it was very easy and turned out delicious. Remember to refrigerate the 'nog' if you like it thick. Yummy!
This is a marvelous recipe...be careful cooking the eggs...be sure you cook on low heat and watch the consistency. I get raves everytime I cook and serve this! Great for Christmas and New Years!!!
A nice simple nonalcoholic eggnog I will make it agian but will reduce eggs by 1/3 as my family doesn't like it quite so "eggie". Also have your icebath ready ahead of time and put the top of your double boiler into the icebath imeadiatly upon the eggnog reaching 170 degreas F or you will end up with a few srambled eggs in the mix. We just used nutmeg and it was wonderfull.
GREAT recipe!!! I live overseas and "eggnog" does not exist!! Only thing... I whipped the cream with confec. sugar instead of regular!! Thanks!!!
