Eggnog Butter Cake

Sweet and spiced Eggnog Butter Cake is a festive spin on my favorite Kentucky Butter Cake! I love this easy bundt cake recipe, it’s just so adaptable!

I have never been an eggnog drinker. I think maybe it’s mostly the name that has always been a bit of a turnoff. Nog is not an appetizing word.

But in recent years I have tried eggnog with a sip here and there, and while I definitely enjoy the nonalcoholic version better, I can certainly see how a bit of rum could make it fun too. I’ve decided it tastes a lot like a melted milkshake…so yeah…

This cake includes a whole lotta eggnog and a few pinches of nutmeg too.

Isn’t it a total stunner?

You coat the cake with an eggnog glaze…and if you can wait until the next day to eat it. Trust me on this…it’s hard, but SO worth it. All the flavors get acquainted and the texture turns dense, but still cakey. Of course I dusted it with a bit of powdered sugar too with my favorite powdered sugar duster.

This cake is perfect to have with a cup of hot tea! I hope you make it…it’s SO good!

  1. Omg I love this cake!!! It is moist, buttery, and decadent!!! Everyone loves it when I make it for the holiday season! Thank you for sharing this recipe. This will be my 3rd year making it for Thanksgiving – it’s a keeper and now part of the holiday tradition! Xo

  2. I’m a huge fan of the Kentucky butter cake recipe on this site, but had a couple of tragedies in releasing them from my bundt pans even after getting crazy with the Crisco and the four. I tried this recipe and it came out perfectly! I used the WIlliams Sonoma Bak-Klean release spray (alone) and it did the trick. I doubled the ingredients and the Kitchenaid 4.5 quart mixing bowl held everything. Thanks Shelly!
