"I made this cake and everyone that tried it liked it. I did make a vanilla glaze for the cake instead of an eggnog glaze. Used a fancy Bundt pan and it looked very pretty. I will be making this again."

"I first tried this recipe after becoming an eggnog fan. It is wonderful! The first time made as directed. Second time I wanted to share so used 5 mini loaf pans. The little cakes were a beautiful pal yellow color. Wrapped in plastic, the little loaves made wonderful treats for neighbors. This is a perfect recipe!"

"This recipe is almost exactly like a recipe from a cookbook published in 2002, except this added 1/4 c more eggnog. Still, a great cake and easy to make amidst the busy holiday activities."

"I made this cake for a friend, but it never left my kitchen. My family LOVED it. Not only did I end up making another one for my friend, but I made three more to take to parties, etc. This is such an easy cake to make, and I took pixie's advice and used yellow cake mix. In one cake I used Rum extract, and in another I used the real thing. In another one I used vanilla extract. I do recommend using a traditional eggnog for a truly delicious cake. Can't wait to make it again next year!!"
