Ever wondered what to do with all that extra eggnog you have after the holidays? My solution…bake with it! That is my answer to most of life’s issues when it comes to eggnog. Eggnog spice bundt cake really outperforms many other holiday favourites and I will tell you why. The smell alone, wafting through your home, will put a smile on your nose for the rest of the day. The smell even encouraged me to put some Christmas music on and dance in the kitchen. Although this may not inspire you to listen to Christmas music since it is mid-January, I’m sure that you can bust your dance moves any time of the year! This cake also puts a nice finish on Christmas dinner or to a 12pm snack on New Years Eve or to a Chinese New Year party. The top comment I received from the partakers of this cake was that it was the “most moist cake they’ve ever had.” Bake away my friends!
