Eggnog Pound Cake
I make this pound cake every Christmas, and have for the last several years. It's always a favorite over the holidays, and I always get requests for it.
1 (16-ounce) package pound cake mix
1 1/4 cups eggnog
2 lg. eggs
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1) Preheat oven to 350* Beat all ingredients together on low speed with an electric mixer until blended. Increase speed to medium, and beat 2 more minutes. Pour into a lightly greased 9x5-inch loaf pan.
2) Bake @ 350* for 1 hour to 1 hour 5 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely, about 1 hour.
*As all ovens are different, this pound cake may require a little more, or a little less cooking time. (I think mine bakes for roughly 55 minutes).
