No holiday party is complete without eggnog. Some people love it and some people hate it (although we dare to to dislike this Caribbean version made with coconut milk) but the truth is eggnog makes its rounds every year. So why not get creative and put a new spin on an old classic? We recommend making an eggnog cake.
What is eggnog cake?
Eggnog cake is made from a combination of homemade or storebought eggnog added to cake batter. Eggnog cake is especially delicious when spiked with rum but, naturally, the addition of alcohol is completely optional.
