have made it every year for the past 3 years. A great gift item. I just put it on a piece of cardboard covered with foil. Travels great... people ask for it every year

Delicious cake! Very easy to make, baked up lighter and fluffier than I expected. Everyone loves it, including my 2-year-old. I followed the recipe exactly, with regular eggnog and butter and whole eggs. I plan to bake this from now on for our New Year's Eve celebrations, since I don't like drinking eggnog.

I would like to find a pound cake, that is true. All the butter, cream, sour cream and all.

I've made it using light butter and light eggnog and its come out great every time. Next time I'm going to try using just egg whites to cut down the fat a bit more.

I used Silk Soymilk Nog and Smart Balance 50/50 Butter Blend to make this a little healthier, and it came out perfect!
