Easy Eggnog Pound Cake

If you’re a fan of eggnog, then you’re going to love this Easy Eggnog Pound Cake. It’s so simple, you’ll be baking batches of it for your frie

nds and family this holiday season.My husband is one of those people who anxiously awaits the appearance of eggnogg in stores every November, so I knew he’d love this pound cake.

To say he loved it would be an understatement. In fact, he couldn’t stop raving about how good it was. My kids love it too.

What I loved most of all about this eggnog pound cake is how incredibly easy it was to make.

The secret is starting off with a pound cake mix. I mean, who doesn’t need a few time-saving shortcuts during the busy holiday season? No one will ever know you started off with a boxed pound cake mix!

Easy Eggnog Pound Cake

Besides a cake mix, all you need to make these tasty holiday loaves are some eggnog (of course!), eggs, nutmeg and vanilla. Plus a little powdered sugar if you opt for the glaze.

As always, I baked my pound cakes in mini loaf pans. But you could certainly opt for one large loaf pan. You’ll just need to increase the cooking time to about an hour.

If you are looking to share some baked goods with your friends and neighbors this holiday season, it really doesn’t get any easier than this eggnog pound cake!

I’m not sure my husband will let me share with the neighbors, but if I make a double batch, I think I can talk him into it!
