Eggnog Pound Cake

Recipe by Acerast

Even people who won't drink eggnog will enjoy this cake. Clipped from a 1998 Women's Day holiday publication - posted so I don't lose the clipping. (Edit 11/29/07 Chef Scancan found it to be a bit dry and has suggested a frosting - I'm thinking maybe a glaze. Let us know if any of you try it a frosting or glaze! Thanks - acerast)

If you like eggnog you will enjoy this cake as the taste of the eggnog definitely comes through. However I think this cake needs a frosting as mine came out slightly drier than I would have liked.
