A mouthwatering, soft, spiced Eggnog Cake with a Pecan Oat Streusel and an Eggnog Glaze..this cake will not be forgotten!
I asked a few weeks back on Facebook who likes eggnog and it was pretty split down the middle..but a lot of people that won’t drink with it, still bake with it! Which is what I like to hear! I’ve used it a bit for baking, and I’m definitely not opposed to a good rum and nutmeg spiked nogg this time of year! 😉
I have a serious question…do you feel totally justified and find it completely acceptable to eat cake for breakfast if it’s coffee cake?! Because I do. I mean, it IS called coffee cake, so you’re supposed to eat it while drinking your coffee, right? The guilt is completely gone, because it’s like eating any other sweet breakfast…scones, danishes, pancakes loaded with sugahhh..
Plus, it’s The Holidays! It’s okay to eat cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner right now! And so I will.
I’ve made this Eggnog Cake three times..in a week. It’s phenomenal. And I don’t say that lightly, neither does my mom, I promise. The last dessert that she went completely crazy over were my Double Chocolate Raspberry Shortbread Bars..this cake is Christmas cake perfection.
The streusel is worth eating with a spoon, and the glaze is drinkable…every aspect of this eggnog coffee cake is mouthwatering.
You should definitely be making this for Christmas Morning, or to bring to your next holiday get together, or really just for yourself and your family this weekend, because it’s wonderful. You will love it because it’s soft and crumby, perfectly sweetened, and unlike many eggnog desserts, you can really get a good hint of eggnog in there!
