heavy whipping cream
Followed another reviewer's advice and doubled the egg yolks, and added vanilla. We never put Rum in our eggnog and think it's delicious that way. One thing the recipe doesn't mention is that to form stiff peaks in the whipping cream you need to also add sugar to that (about 2 Tblsp). This also makes the recipe sweeter - We serve the whipping cream on the side so each person can make it as sweet as they like.
Man all I wanted to do was try eggnog. I really hope this is a bad example of the recipe because i'm certain no self respecting american would even think of drinking this! Sorry, just not nice at all. Hopefully I'll find a better recipe somewhere else.
this tasted good, but not very "eggy", it tasted like sweetend milk with whipped cream and rum. next time i might try adding more eggs.
Very good starter recipe. The only changes I had to make was doubling the egg yolks( I agree with other reviewers without this it isn't eggy enough like eggnog should be) . I also added 1 tsp of nutmeg to the eggnog itself because it was alittle too plain for how we like our eggnog. I didn't add in the rum but kept it as an option on the side so the kids could enjoy it also. With the changes I made it came out thick and oh so yummy. Everyone at our Christmas loved it. I also made this the night before due to time constraints the next day and it kept perfectly.
Just add vanilla and double the yolks - you will enjoy it a lot! We dropped the sugar, but it was too unsweet, so be sure to follow the recipe or use more if you have a sweet tooth :) Merry Christmas!
Excellent, cooked eggnog recipe so the kids can enjoy it too!
Just silky smooth, thick and delicious. Not too sweet. I doubled the eggs like Jacobow said on a previous comment. Merry Christmas!
it was good...simple uncomplicated steps..i dont usually make eggnog and was looking for something without totally raw eggs..this fit the bill...ty
