Last week I didn't share anything that I had made over the weekend. This weekend I got back to baking and making something tasty for the family. Last month it seemed like each weekend I was using pumpkin as the base for my tasty treats. December I have decided to go with egg nog. I love egg nog but just have never used it before in baking. I'm glad that I tried it because now I love egg nog even more. It just feels like Christmas to have a jug of egg nog sitting in the fridge for whenever I get a hankering for it...Sunday I made Egg Nog Pound Cake. It was yummy. I think that little bug and myself have eaten most of the loaf since then...(I did take half of it to his babysitters house for them to enjoy there as well).
1 (16-oz.) package pound cake mix
1 1/4 cups eggnog
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
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.
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).
