Make an easy holiday pound cake by starting with a box of pound cake mix and adding eggnog and ground nutmeg. Not only is it perfect for holiday entertaining, you can also  toast a few slices and top with jam or preserves for breakfast.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Beat all ingredients together at low speed with an electric mixer until blended. Increase speed to medium, and beat 2 minutes. Pour into a lightly greased 9- x 5-inch loaf pan.

Step 2

Bake at 350° for 1 hour to 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour).

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!

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.

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

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.

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.
