How To Use That Leftover Eggnog by @Donna_Fasano

 Have you been wondering what to do with that leftover eggnog? Here’s a recipe that is sure to please. The cake contains the spices found in eggnog AND a nice dollop of actual eggnog. There’s another splash of eggnog in the glaze. Enjoy!

 Eggnog Loaf Cake

For the cake: 

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

4 Tbsp. butter, softened

4 Tbsp. vegetable oil

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp. vanilla extract

3/4 cup eggnog


For the glaze:

1 cup confectioner’s sugar

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Pinch of nutmeg

2-3 Tbsp. eggnog



1.     Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.

2.    In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

3.    In a large bowl, beat together the butter, oil, and white and brown sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Add half of the dry ingredients, followed by half of the eggnog, mixing after each addition only until fully incorporated. Add the remaining dry ingredients and eggnog, stirring after each addition. Do not to overmix.

4.    Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and spread into an even layer. Bake on the center rack for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Cool completely.

5.    Make the glaze by combining the confectioner’s sugar, the cinnamon, and the nutmeg. Stir to combine. Add the eggnog a tablespoon at a time until the glaze is thick but pourable. Glaze the cooled cake and serve.





  1. Thanks for the recipe, Donna. Looks delicious!

    1. You're welcome, Josie. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  2. Hmm! I’m not too sure about that but it does look good. It probably has too more carbs in it than my doctor allows me for just one meal .

    1. I'm sorry to hear that. Can I have your slice? lol Thank you for stopping by!

  3. That looks and sounds amazing, Donna. Have shared the link with my son, who loves eggnog.
