Like "oldman437", my batter was also very thick (I used a generic eggnog). Despite that, the cake came out moist and crumbly and delicious! I topped it with the glaze shown above, and then also added a little dollop of cool whip. I too used rum in place of rum extract. My glaze took about 5-6 tsp of eggnog to get thin enough to drizzle. I was a bit confused about what size box was considered "regular", so I used Pillsbury's Moist Supreme White Cake, 15.25oz. I also couldn't find any 3.9oz sized instant puddings; I only found 3.4oz, so that's what I used. Everything seemed to work out fine! Very easy recipe and a great way to use up extra eggnog!

Good cake. When I made this, my batter was very thick. I think it was because of the Southern Comfort Eggnog I used. I thought the batter would make the cake like a pound cake, but it didn't. The cake was light and almost airy. the eggnog flavor was kind of mild, but I'm making this again and trying another brand of 'nog. I didn't have extract, so I used actual rum. Even if it turns out the same, I'll be making this again.

This was a big hit first year I made it. Now it is a must have during the holidays..

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.

Absolutely deeelicious! Followed the recipe except I used 2 TBS. real dark rum. Cake was like eating a Dunkin Donuts plain donut. Yummy! I will make this again and again.

Very easy to make with good egg nog flavor. I don't care for egg nog, but the cake was good! I'll save this recipe.

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.
