Mini Old Fashioned Eggnog Bundt Cakes

Today I am bringing you another recipe that utilizes the simplicity of a cake mix with eggnog as one of the ingredients. These mini cakes are really festive and flavorful.
 

I love eggnog and I really love trying to come up with new recipes that use eggnog. By far my favorite is my Holiday Eggnog Quick Bread, I have been making it for so long.

I saw this recipe for Old Fashioned Eggnog Bundt Cake on the back of the eggnog carton and it really sounded so good plus I am always up for new recipes.
 

I have actually made this recipe twice. Once in my new mini bundt cake pans pictured above, and in a regular large size bundt pan.
 

Both ways it turned out really good, but I prefer to use the mini bundt pans. I felt like the cake did not bake as high in the large bundt pan.

I used the Sam's Club Old Fashioned Eggnog. For me the best part of this cake is all that eggnog glaze that is drizzled over the top.
 

If you want something quick or you just have some eggnog that needs to be used up this would be the perfect recipe. This cake is so moist and delicious. 

This recipe is a new addition to my Christmas Recipe Collection.



These are the ingredients you will need:
one yellow or golden butter recipe cake mix, eggnog, regular milk (not pictured), butter, 2 eggs, rum extract, vanilla extract (for glaze not pictured), nutmeg and powdered sugar.

In a large bowl, add the cake mix, eggnog, milk, eggs, rum extract, nutmeg and melted butter.


Mix together on low speed for 30 seconds. Then beat on medium speed for 2 minutes until batter is smooth.


spray your pan with baking spray. (I use the Crisco baking spray with flour) You can use regular baking spray but you will need to dust with some flour after.


Por the batter into the mini bundt pans.



Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes for one large bundt cake. Or 20-25 for mini bundt pans. Everyones oven is different so just check on the cakes frequently, when the cake springs back and a toothpick inserted comes out clean its done.


While cake is baking prepare the glaze and set aside.



Cool cakes in the pan for 5 minutes before removing. Then remove and cool completely on a baking rack.


Drizzle on eggnog glaze and cool completely until the glaze is set and dry.

Hi Joan, I loved that pan the first time i saw it. It was at sams club it came with a cake storage and the pan for $22 each bundt cake is about 6 x6 I love how they are all together in one pan. Dh brought it home for me as a early Xmas present. I had to try it out the same day. Ü
