Great use for leftover eggnog! This was a very tasty cake, extremely easy, and smelled heavenly! I did add a bit extra rum flavoring because I like it. I served the cake with Hagen Daaz Rum Raisin ice cream for an extra special treat. Thanks for sharing this!

I had some left over eggnog from the holidays so I used it in this recipe. I like it alot. I would not use the almonds next time, just personal preference... Moist and tasty. I cut the recipe in 1/2 and baked it in a loaf pan...because you said tube pan...which I never heard of and did not want to run the risk of it spilling over, which I think it would have if I had not cut it in half...so a bigger than loaf pan is needed... Thanks for the recipe.

So easy and so good! If this lasts until my Christmas party tomorrow night I will be totally surprised! A few changes - I didn't have rum so I used 2 tablespoons of amaretto. ;-) I made some Coquito - Puerto Rican Eggnog that I used and that really _gilded the lily_ with a little coconut flavor. The cake is *so* moist that cutting it with the almonds in the way does cause a little crumbling. (Cook’s snack) Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Wonderful cake, a lovely light eggnog taste. I left out the almonds as DH isn't overly fond of them. This was spectacular sliced with a scoop of high quality vanilla ice cream with German eggnog liqueur poured over. Can you say decadent? This will be a holiday staple from now on.

Forgot to add that I didn't have any almonds so I used pecans.
