This cake is creamy, sweet, and great eggnog flavor! I love a really good eggnog. Not all eggnog's are created the same so if you think you don't like eggnog, you just haven't found a good one yet. I created this cake for the holiday season when it's ok to indulge a little because this is definitely NOT low calorie!! This cake has to sit a while so plan to make it a day ahead and it has to be kept refrigerated.

How to Make Eggnog Tres Leches Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13x9 baking dish with nonstick spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, yogurt, eggnog, and canola oil. With an electric mixer, blend on low for 30 seconds; shut off and scrape down sides. Blend on medium speed for 2 minutes. Batter should be smooth but slightly thicker than a regular cake batter. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25- 28 minutes or until cake begins to pull away from sides of pan. Remove and allow to cool on wire rack.Once cool, poke holes in cake at 1 inch intervals using a wooden spoon or straw.
  3. In a bowl, stir together sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and eggnog. Pour entire bowl slowly into holes on cake. Cover pan and refrigerate overnight or a minimum of 4 hours. The longer it sits, the better it gets.
  4. Meanwhile, in a chilled bowl, beat whipping cream and sugar with chilled beaters until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate until ready to use. To serve, place a dollop on portion of cake and garnish with a sprinkle of fresh ground nutmeg. Store cake in refrigerator.
    *** in my second batch of whipped cream, I added the nutmeg directly to the whipping cream and that was quite tasty too.
