Bourbon Soaked Eggnog Cake

This rich Bourbon Soaked Eggnog Cake will be the star of the holiday dessert table – a classic bundt cake is soaked with a bourbon laced eggnog glaze for the ultimate holiday dessert.

Y’all know I’m a big fan of the boozy bite so I brought a rich and luscious Bourbon Soaked Eggnog Cake to the party kickoff. This cake is moist, rich and drizzled with a bourbon eggnog glaze to take it totally over the top. If you have this on your holiday table, I assure you, people will go nuts for it.

Here’s the secret – it is so easy to make. Seriously – sift a few ingredients, mix a few ingredients, bake, brush with a bit of bourbon, let cool, glaze and then bring it to the soiree. If you want to leave the bourbon out or want to use another spirit of choice – like perhaps rum, Kahlua or even amaretto, who am I to stop you. It will be absolutely delicious.

    July 25, 2018 at 8:25 am I made this at Christmas and it was a hit! I used Kahlua Liquor instead of bourbon because I didn’t have any bourbon. I served it with a small scoop of vanilla icecream, yum. Thanks for the recipe.
