This easy cake is made with eggnog, a cake mix, and optional rum. This is a delicious cake, and it's quick and easy to make for the holidays.


  • 8 tablespoons butter (4 ounces), softened
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1/4 cup rum, or use 1/4 cup more of the eggnog with 1 teaspoon rum flavoring
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 package (18.25 ounces) white cake mix


Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt cake pan. Heat oven to 325°.

Beat butter until light; beat in eggs and eggnog and rum or rum flavoring. Add vanilla, nutmeg, and cake mix; beat slowly to combine, then beat on high speed for 2 minutes. Spoon into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a cake tester or wooden pick comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the cake.

Cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes. Invert the cake onto a serving tray and cool completely before frosting or dusting with powdered sugar.

Although I forgot to cream the butter before adding the liquid ingredients, all went well. I am very impressed with the taste and texture of the finished product. Next Christmas, I plan to use bourbon to make one of these and to use maple liqueur to make one of these as well. I think those may both work well.
