"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'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."
