Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
This cake is light and fresh, with a hint of nutmeg and orange, and it's just yum. I added sweetened whipped cream and orange zest to the filling. The eggnog mixture for the filling was too thick, so I added a bit more eggnog while it was cooking, but you could cut down on the flour instead. This cake is worth every bowl it takes to make it.
I first made this cake years ago, but then misplaced the recipe. I was thrilled to be able to get another copy. The cake is time consuming, but delicious and worth the effort for a special occasion. I am confused by the previous rating since there is no brown sugar to be cooked in this recipe.
When you cook the brown sugar for 25 mins then cool it's like hard candy. I had to re-heat to add it to the other ingredents but it was the worst filling not spreadable it was like hard carmel candy. I ended up tossing the whole cake. I hope someone else has better luck.
