  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 1-1/3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil and egg whites; beat on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium 2 minutes. Pour into a greased and floured 13x9-in. baking pan.
  2. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Using a skewer, poke holes in cake 1 in. apart.
  3. In a large bowl, combine eggnog, sweetened condensed milk and 2% milk. Pour 3/4 cup mixture over cake; let stand until liquid is absorbed, 20-30 minutes. Repeat 4 times. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  4. In a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Spread over cake. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. Refrigerate leftovers.
