    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 a bigger than loaf pan is needed... Thanks for the recipe.
