Flavor of the Month

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).



Ingredients


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

Preparation

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).
