A great holiday treat

Eggnog Cake

A yummy breakfast delight ….

What you need…

  • Cooking Spray
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup full-fat eggnog
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the Streusel

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup pecans
  • ¼ cup cold butter, cut into tablespoons
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the Glaze

  • 1 ½ Tablespoons eggnog
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • Pinch of nutmeg

What you do…

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray the Bundt pan with the      cooking spray. (Make sure you get all the nooks and crannies!) Then flour      your pan.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle      attachment, cream together the butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the sides      as you go.
  4. Add the eggnog, sour cream, and vanilla, beat until      mixed though.
  5. Sift in the all-purpose and cake flour, sprinkle on the      nutmeg, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Mix until just combined. Finish by using a rubber      spatula and scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl, and stir      together. Set aside.
  7. To make the Streusel; In a food processor, add the      brown sugar, oats, flour, pecans, and cinnamon. Pulse until it’s in a      loose flour-like consistency, about 30-40 seconds.
  8. Cut in the cold butter and pulse until butter is mixed      through and the streusel can be pinched together.
  9. You’re going to divide the streusel into four different      parts, so don’t’ use it all at once! Start by sprinkling ¼ of the streusel      into the bottom of the greased and floured Bundt pan. Scoop half of your      cake batter onto the streusel, the batter is thick, so you may need to      help it along to fully cover it. Then sprinkle about ½ of what is left of      the streusel onto the batter (This is where you want to use the most      streusel!) Pour in the remaining cake batter, and make sure it’s spread      evenly. Sprinkle half of what’s remaining of the streusel, on the top of      the batter.
  10. Pop in the pre-heated oven for 45 minutes. Stick a slim      knife or toothpick in to check it’s doneness, and if it comes out wet,      start the timer for another 5 minutes. Continue this pattern until a knife      comes out clean. (The first time I made this, my cake took a full hour,      the second time, it was 50 minutes. So be sure to check it!)
  11. Once it’s done, remove from the oven and allow it to      cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before carefully flipping the cake      onto a cake stand or plate.
  12. Allow the cake to cool through completely before adding      the glaze.
  13. To make the glaze, mix together the eggnog, powdered      sugar, and nutmeg with a fork until smooth.
  14. Pour over the cake, around the entire top. Sprinkle      with the remaining streusel and serve!
