Eggnog Filling incorporates the ingredients of everyone's favorite holiday drink to use between layers of white cake for a luscious dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

How to Make It

  1. Whisk together first 5 ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, 10 to 12 minutes or until mixture reaches a chilled pudding-like thickness. Remove from heat; stir in bourbon and vanilla. Cool to room temperature (about 1 hour). Place plastic wrap directly on mixture (to prevent a film from forming), and chill 6 to 24 hours.
