Eggnog Rum Bundt Cake

Eggnog Rum Bundt Cake created by Big Kahuna in Alaska

A wonderful way to cook with eggnog. A little time consuming but well worth it. This was at our family Christmas party and everyone including me asked for the recipe. Edited to add if the cake is coming out dry its being overcooked. Every bundt pan is different. If you have a dark coated or heavy one you should be testing the cake with a cake tester as well as if its a regular bundt pan because every oven is different. I always check all my cakes earlier than the timer goes off. Also bundt cakes and eggnog are a heavy cake its dense like a cofffee cake.

    I agree with Chef#850695 and junk90_7021728. I made it for Thanksgiving dessert and I'm taking most of it into work today. Too dry and too heavy, and I actually thought the eggnog overpowered the rum. I also was disappointed in the fact that the sugar in the glaze crystallized on the cake; I was hoping for either a more syrupy glaze or a glaze that soaked into the cake, and it was neither!

    I baked this cake for Christmas desert. I was totally disappointed. The cake was extremely dry. Threw the entire cake in the trash. (I thought this recipe would be excellent since it was from scratch, but next time I would use a souped up cake mix.!

    I found this recipe to be rather dry . I followed the advice of another reviewer and cut back the sugar a lot - I only used 1 1/4 C, not 2 1/4 C, because the eggnog was very sweet too. It was the perfect sweetness for us. Also used fresh orange juice and zest in the glaze and that was really good.

    This cake is FANTASTIC...not time consuming at all ....I did not use the glaze...just sifted some powdered sugar with a little eggnog and poured that over the cake. I will be making this one again for sure...thanks for a great recipe!
