    I first tested it on me & my husband to see if it would make a good Christmas food gift. A definite YES! Made one recipe & divided it in 4 mini loaf pans. After cooling, wrapped in clear wrap, tied with a pretty ribbon & put a gift label on each one. A big hit. One elderly gentleman ate it all in one sitting. I will definitely make this again.

    This recipe was so simple and so very delicious. Great recipe for eggnog lovers such as myself. Great Christmas gift too!

    YUM! This tastes just like Christmas. Looks like a traditional pound cake, but then you're hit with the rich, creamy, decadence of egg nog. Must try!

    I love this recipe. It is so easy to make, travels well and makes a great impression. One of those great take-along gifts for visiting. Add a little green or red sugar on top for a festive treat or perfect gift. I've also used the batter to make mini cupcakes for my cookie platters - worked wonderfully (just watch cooking time, it bakes quickly in small containers).

    I tried this recipe after a friend gave me some homemade eggnog. Not a big fan of eggnog but did not want to thow it out since she had obviously made this with love and wonderful ingredients. The eggnog pound cake was a wonderful and delicious solution. Came together very quickly, and gave a moist and flavorful cake. Also used the mini loaf pans and froze some for later (freezes very well). And I could tell my friend how wonderful her eggnog was! Which is good because she now gives me some every year!

    If you have ever had real pound cake then you would instantly know this is from a box

    Is there anyway you could make this without a pound cake mix?

    Read the reviews before preparing the cake. Folded in the zest of an orange and 1 cup chopped fresh cranberries after mixing the ingredients. Also used Light eggnog. Great results. So easy to make, and enjoyed by all.

    This is a light, delicious treat to have with coffee or as dessert. I used reduced fat eggnog to save calories. The eggnog flavor is not excessive--just right. I baked it in two 8 X 4 pans and it cooked in 45 minutes. If you use smaller pans, it will likely be baked even sooner so be sure to check it.

    Love love it. My husband fell in love with it last year. And couldn't wait for this time of the year win the eggnog came out.
