People who like a lot of spices would probably like this cake, but I found the spices overwhelming. I will probably try this recipe again without the spices, as just an eggnog poundcake, because I do like eggnog! This cake does have a nice texture, but it just wasn't one that appealed to my personal taste.

Yummiest holiday cake I've ever made! Huge hit at our annual open house for 2 years. Takes a little time but well worth it.....and lasts for several days....if you have any left after the party! It's now on my holiday staples list!

I did everything that the recipe called for ,but I did add toasted pecans to the cinnamon,nutmeg cloves. I did not use the alspice. I am making another one to freeze to use later while I still have eggnog left. I used the eggnog with the powdered sugar for the icing.

I will try this for the first time at work. I want to see what coworker thank since I dont really have time to shop this will be something that I can spread around. I am going to give it 3 stars for now but I will let you know how it turns out.

This was a very delicious cake. Perfect for gift giving during the holidays. The cake was dense and not too sweet. The eggnog flavor was not overpowering - I would have liked to taste more of it - but I opted for a glass of eggnog while eating the cake :) Oh, I like kflister's idea of adding eggnog to the icing - that will oomph up the flavor, thank you !
