Christmas is around the corner and when you are pressed for time and need a quick and easy dessert or cake to entertain with this is going to save the day! With yummy eggnog, rum and cloves, this easy eggnog bundt cake is just the thing to put you in the holiday spirit!
So many of my formal pre-Christmas rituals have gone out the window. Never listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving? Gone. I’m on a Christmas music bender.
No Thanksgiving or Black Friday shopping? So long!! The deals were too good to pass up. Has my new motherhood driven uber thriftiness taken over so soon?! The things I swore I wouldn’t do like my mother, have taken hold in me at a rate I never imagined possible! Coupon clipping, deal hunting, cringing over spending an extra $10 pains me so!
But some things did stay slightly the same – I spent the time with family quietly and enjoying our time together without running to the stores or camping out like a maniac. These special holiday times together are too few and far between to go from the dinner table to Target without a second thought.
No deal is too good to miss out on time together.
One of my favorite things about the holidays are those special little times. This is the time of year to catch up and take things a little slower than you have the rest of the year. Go visit those who you haven’t had time to see for a while, and strike up that precious conversation with a warm cup of coffee in hand and a smile on your face. This is the season of cheer for a reason.
And now that I have given into the early Christmas music listening, the early holiday shopping, it’s time that I also give way to the drinking of EGGNOG!! One of my favorite things of the season. It is the pumpkin spice of Christmas, and I am 110% behind that!
If you are entertaining, or going somewhere to share in the holiday spirit, be sure to whip up this easy eggnog bundt cake. It’s a semi-homemade wonder that will give you all the warm holiday feels.
One of the things I am not ashamed of is that I do love a boxed mix cake. I know! For all the from scratch baking and cooking, I love a good boxed mix cake because it is delightfully predictable and delicious! There is nothing wrong with going with what you know, remember and love. Embrace the consistency and unwavering sameness that comes from a mix. Also THE TIME SAVINGS!
For this easy eggnog bundt cake I started with a yellow butter cake boxed mix and doctored it from there to get the perfect eggnog flavors! It is easy, fluffy, butter, spicy and delicious.
If you need a quick treat to make or gift to someone – this is it!
