This was originally an amaretto cake until I substituted eggnog! Very moist and delicious.

This easy Bundt cake tastes of Christmas! The cake is tender with a subtle eggnog flavor. The rum glaze is what makes this cake special. On its own, the glaze seemed a little strong. But once drizzled on the cake, it was perfect. It really gave the cake a punch of flavor. This is an easy dessert if you're asked to bring something to Christmas dinner.
