Eggnog Coffee Cake

Eggnog makes a delicious addition to this quick coffee cake. Canned eggnog is a fine option if you can't find fresh.


1 (9") coffee cake

Recipe from

Oxmoor House


2 tablespoons fine, dry breadcrumbs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, divided
1 cup refrigerated eggnog
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons bourbon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Grease a 9" cakepan; sprinkle with breadcrumbs, and tap out excess. Set pan aside.

Combine flour, sugar, salt, and butter with a pastry blender until crumbly. Remove 1 cup crumb mixture; set aside. Stir baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg into remaining crumb mixture.

Stir together eggnog, egg, bourbon, and vanilla. Add eggnog mixture to crumb mixture; beat at medium-high speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg to reserved 1 cup crumb mixture; sprinkle over batter. Bake at 375° for 45 to 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm or at room temperature.
