Festive Eggnog Pound Cake

A festive pound cake is moist, tender and full of holiday flavor with the addition of rum and holiday eggnog. 
Are you a eggnog lover? I have come to realize when it comes to eggnog you either love it or hate it. My husband and I both love it!  I usually have to purchase extra for baking, because my husband will drink all of it. Most times I have to fight for my share if I want any at all.  

If you too are a eggnog lover than you're going to love this easy and festive Eggnog Pound Cake. I have a recipe for eggnog bread, but I've always loved the texture of a good old fashioned pound cake.  I didn't have a recipe for eggnog pound cake, so I created one instead.

I have a wonderful recipe for vanilla pound cake and I have had great results in the past adapting it into a few different flavors. This time was no different and the pound cake turned out fabulous! 

If you have a carton of eggnog in your refrigerator that needs to be used I highly recommend making this pound cake. If you pressed for time no worries, because did you know that you can freeze eggnog? Well you can and it's really easy. I freeze my eggnog in the same manner that I freeze buttermilk. 

I love having eggnog stashed away in my freezer, so I can enjoy all my favorite eggnog flavored desserts, cookies, pies and breads all year long.  I normally keep buttermilk or eggnog in the freezer no long than 6 months.

If you need a festive dessert or cake I hope you'll give this pound cake a try, because it is totally worth it!
