Eggnog not’s just for sipping: Use it to add extra richness and flavor to a holiday bundt cake.

How to Make It

Step 1

Generously grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan; set aside.

Step 2

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer about 2 minutes or until creamy. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating 5 to 7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until yellow disappears.

Step 3

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture alternately with 1 cup eggnog, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla and, if desired, brandy.

Step 4

Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Stir cinnamon and next 3 ingredients into remaining batter. Spoon spice batter over plain batter. Swirl batters together, using a knife.

Step 5

Bake at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes. Remove from pan; cool on wire rack.

Step 6

Place cake on a cake plate; dust with powdered sugar.

Step 7

Combine 1 cup powdered sugar and whipping cream, stirring until smooth. Drizzle glaze over cake.
