a bit late, but is there really a wrong time for egg nog?

Hello! So I made this cake for Christmas dinner with the Morris side of the family. It kind of doesn't really taste much like egg nog, but it's pretty tasty just the same. I put some holiday sprinkles on mine for a little extra Christmas cheer. :)I had a picture, but me and the blogger image uploader are having some issues this evening.


1/2 c. butter
1 1/3 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. EACH rum extract & vanilla
3 c. flour
2 1/2 baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. egg nog
2 tbsp. water

Beat butter and sugar, eggs and extracts. Add dry ingredients, followed by egg nog and water. Mix well and bake in a greased and floured angel food cake pan. I always cut out a layer of waxed paper for bottom of pan so cake comes out easily. Cool in pan 15 minutes before removing.


3 tbsp. egg nog
2 tbsp. light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. rum extract

Mix and add powdered sugar to desired consistency and spread over cake.
