This is a “Lazy Lady” recipe. Meaning, it doesn’t take much or is a “doctored up” canned or boxed meal item.
Today it’s an amazing cake made from boxed cake and canned frosting. Why? Because I’m lazy. Also, I can’t make frosting to save my life. Seriously. It’s pathetic. It always comes out wrong. So, I rarely make my own frosting.
Back to the topic at hand, Eggnog Cake is simple enough, buy yourself the following:
*White cake mix
*1 Can Buttercream Frosting (That plus rum equals buttered rum. Clever, right?)
*The ingredients listed on the cake mix box
Step 1 – Prepare the boxed cake as directed making one minor change. Instead of using water, use eggnog in the mix.* This will make the batter thicker than usual and you will probably have to bake the cake a bit longer, but it will turn out delicious.
*In order to increase the eggnoggy flavor, add 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice to the mix. Yum.
Step 2 – Mix the can of Buttercream frosting with 1 teaspoon rum (or if it’s for kids like mine, substitute artificial rum flavoring), 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves. Fold it into the the frosting with a spatula, there’s no need to use a mixer, the spatula is fine.
Once the cake is cool, frost it. It tastes better after sitting in the fridge for a few hours.
