"These cupcakes are a great way to get the flavor of eggnog without being overwhelmed by its richness. The frosting is light and creamy, not overly sweet or waxy!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 24 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. Stir yellow cake mix, 1 1/2 cups eggnog, eggs, 1/4 cup melted butter, and nutmeg together in a bowl until batter is smooth. Pour cupcake batter into prepared muffin cups to fill about 2/3 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Stir 1 cup eggnog and flour together in a saucepan over medium-high heat until mixture thickens, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  5. Beat butter, shortening, and sugar together in a bowl with an electric mixture until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Slowly beat in cooled eggnog mixture and beat until desired frosting consistency is reached. Spread frosting onto cooled cupcakes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • For a sweeter frosting, substitute 2 to 3 cups confectioners' sugar for the 1 cup white sugar.

The cake was a bit heavy, but still tasty. Disapointed with the frosting which after a few hours drooped off. Next time I will try the butter cream frosting suggested by another reviewer

While I haven't made the frosting yet, I wanted ot review the cupcake. Some eggnog cupcake recipes result in a dense cupcake. In anticipation of this, I mixed the batter for 2 minutes at medium ...
