Spiked Egg Nog Cake

30 Dec

I agonized over what to have for a dessert when my family came out Christmas Eve.  I wanted to try something new and different, and I finally settled on Spiked Egg Nog Cake.

It was amazing!  Unlike a traditional rum cake, this one is light.

Cake:

Cream:
1/2 cup softened butter
1 1/3 cup sugar

Add:
2 eggs

Alternate adding the dry and liquid ingredients:

3 cups flour
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

1 1/3 cup egg not
1 Tbsp. rum extract

To make the cream filling mix:

1 cup chevre (or cream cheese) softened
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp softened butter
1 Tbsp. corn starch
1 egg
2 Tbsp. egg nog
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Put half the batter ont he bottom of a well greased and floured bundt pan.  Drizzle the cheese mixture around and finish covering with the remaining batter.  Bake at 350*F for 40 – 50 minutes.  When the cake is completely cooled, remove it from the pan and drizzle with the glaze.

Glaze:

1 – 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar (depending how much you want the glaze to soak into the cake)
1/4 cup egg nog
1/4 tsp. rum extract
f.g. of nutmeg

Since this is the perfect holiday cake, HERE is a printable version so you can print it and keep it until next year!
