Tasty Eggnog Cake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
This was an alright cake. Moist and very much like a coffee cake but not enough flavour for our house.
I made this cake and it didn't turn out well. It may be due to the fact that my flour was old and may have been dry also I didn't have applesauce so used chopped fresh apple. It was heavy. I will try this recipe again and use the called for ingredients and fresh flour.
Whew! I never saw so much dissension over a cake! Some said it was so dry and tasteless they threw it away. Others said it was moist and delicious. Some said it had no eggnog flavor and others said there was too much eggnog flavor. Some said they had to bake it less than called for and others baked it longer. I don?t know why there is so much disparity. What I found was that the taste of the cake was probably about like that of a yellow cake, so it was not tasteless and was not terrible. It just did not taste a lot like eggnog. [email protected] suggested adding an extra tablespoon or two of eggnog. Eggnog extract can be ordered online and could be used. Like [email protected], I substituted applesauce for the oil to save a few calories. The recipe called for 20-25 minutes baking time. I found I had to bake it 25 minutes. The cake was very moist and, I thought, quite good.
The cake was dry and tasteless! We were invited to my daughter's for dinner and I made this cake to bring along for dessert and needless to say, I was quite embarrassed. We ended up throwing the cake out along with the recipe. It just wasn't worth wasting calories on.
My friends and family like this cake. I find that eggnog freezes well and reconstitutes when thawed to use in the recipe. Yes, it may be a little dry as a cake, but at holiday time I love to add a scoop of eggnog ice cream to the cake when I serve it!
Dry and flavorless.
I made this cake according to the recipe directions and it was awful. It was more like a bland coffee cake than an actual dessert cake. It needs more sweetness added to it to qualify as a dessert.
Didn't care for the flavor at all. Egg nog flavor was way to overpowering for my taste
This was a very moist and tasteful cake. I made it exactly as posted but found I had to cook it about 10 minutes longer. Might cut down on the brown sugar or use Splenda next time but otherwise, wouldn't change a thing.
The egg nog taste was a bit over powering for me with this cake. I would have prefered a more sutle egg nog taste.
