Eggnog cake

Jump to recipe

So an eggnog cake doesn’t just taste good at Easter, does it?

I think you can actually eat it any day, because it looks and tastes wonderful. And if you decorate the sides of the cake with some chocolate shavings – perfect!

Such a chocolate-hazelnut base is also really good without flour. And if you have a gluten intolerance, then you probably have gluten-free baking powder at home, right? And tada- your cake is already gluten-free 🙂

But tell me, do you also have the issue that when the middle of the cake rises like a volcano? Yes, sounds familiar? Then I have the ultimate trick for you! Just don’t grease the edge of the spring form pan. So just the bottom of it. Then the dough can climb up the sides evenly, and you have a beautiful, evenly risen cake base!

That brings me to the next tip I have for you:

What is the best way to distribute the eggnog?

I used homemade eggnog for my eggnog cake because it’s a bit thicker. But if you decorate / garnish the cake with whipped cream on the edge, the eggnog cannot overflow so easily. And it’s best to start in the middle of the cake. And do let the liqueur flow very slowly over the back of a spoon. That has already helped me a lot. Just try it!

If you cannot get “Whip it” to stabilize your whipped cream, you can substitute it with a packet of powdered gelatin and mix it as per the instructions for best results.

Enjoy the cake!
