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).


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).
