Eggnog Pound Cake

Eileen Hineline


My family loves Eggnog pound cake and I make it every chance I can. I made a cake last night for work. I buy alot of eggnog when its in season then measure out 1 cup amounts and freeze it, so when we want eggnog cake, I just pull out what i need.
This cake is always so moist and delicious.

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Beat on low until for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
For sauce, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt; gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolk; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
Remove from the heat; stir in butter and vanilla. Cool for 15 minutes. Fold in whipped cream. Store in the refrigerator. Serve with the cake. Yield: 16-20 servings.
You can make the custard sauce or not. I drizzled vanilla frosting over the cake and then sprinkled nutmeg over the frosting, my family likes it better this way. You can use rum extract too.
