Eggnog Pound Cake

Eggnog Pound Cake

Christmas is my favorite time of year but eggnog is my least favorite thing to drink-however i’ll eat it.  Insert me creating an eggnog pound cake on accident lol. I know I can’t be the only person that just can not get past the texture of eggnog but my kids love it!  I’m a creative mom and chef, right?  So welcome to a really delicious mistake I made one year.  The eggnog and the milk cartons looked the same to me one night after hours of cooking…

It was after the cake had cooled that I realized I used eggnog and not milk!  No worries.  It wasn’t perfect when I tasted it but it tasted good enough that I figured I was on to something with this.  It’s also when I started using it in the frosting too lol.  A whole new world was opened up to me.  Coffee creamers were next but that’s another post for another day.

I have my grandmother’s pound cake recipe listed on this site and it’s totally my absolute favorite.  But I’m a creative so exploring flavorings during the holidays makes me really happy.  So let’s get into this recipe, shall we!


All of my pound cakes use high-quality ingredients.  Like I’ll go the extra mile to get vanilla beans from the farmers market.  But as a busy mom sometimes we need to take a little shortcut!

For this recipe, we are going to use a boxed pound cake mix!  I know it!  You’re shocked right lol.  It’s fine when you really think about your life during the holiday season you’ll thank me for this later. 

1 package of boxed pound cake mix (any brand just make sure it’s 16 oz), eggnog, eggs, nutmeg and vanilla extract are all you need to turn any frown upside down!

You could be a little fancy and add a nice vanilla glaze but honestly, this recipe is perfect by itself!  Stay Sweet and let me know how yours turns out!
