Christmas Eggnog Pound Cake
A festive holiday dessert for a Christmas dinner party or just for fun at Christmas time. I love how this Christmas Eggnog Pound Cake is made with a little surprise inside. It makes a fun dessert to surprise your friends and family with.
The Christmas season has officially begun, in my house anyway. Seeing all the stores decorated for the holidays and all the holiday gifts to buy has inspired me to start early this year.
Which, by the way….is a first. I’m usually getting out my Christmas decorations after Thanksgiving and buying gifts up to the day before Christmas.
But that was too hectic, so now I start at the beginning of November which leaves lots of time for decorating and planning….and of course shopping.
No morning is complete without my Ragdoll, Callie she’s 2 1/2 years old.
So, you want to know how to make these fun festive cakes?
You will start by preparing two cakes.
One will be white and you will use food coloring to color the other one red.
After the red cake has baked, you’ll cut it out using a cookie cutter. What I love about these cakes is you can use any shape of cookie cutters.
I’m thinking next year I will make a white cake with a blue snowflake. There are so many variations, that’s what makes these cakes so fun.
Next, you will line the shapes in a loaf pan making sure they fit snug. Be sure to line your loaf pan with foil or parchment paper so they will easily come out and won’t stick to the pan.
There’s nothing worse then spending an afternoon in the kitchen then have your cake stick to the pan, after you pry it out it’s trashed.
Pour your cake batter over the shapes, pouring along the sides first then on top. Your cakes will fall to one side if you pour the heavy batter on top first.
For fun, I colored a small amount green and swirled it in with the white batter.
You can also make green Christmas trees with white batter or red batter with white Christmas trees.
After it’s baked let it cool then top it with icing and some festive candy or jimmies.
I love having this sitting out on my table because it matches my holiday decorations!
I can’t wait to show you more cakes I’m working on!
Thanks for stopping by!
