Eggnog Cake with Buttered Rum Frosting

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.


El Fin.
