  • Beat cake mix, butter, eggnog, and pudding mix together in a bowl with an electric mixer until just moistened. Add eggs and nutmeg; beat until batter is smooth, about 4 minutes. Pour batter into prepared cake pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Not as dense as I expect a pound cake to be but it was easy as advertised. You can't really blame the ingredients for tasting like themselves (fake and processed) so I'm giving it 3 stars to average the two I'd give it for taste and four I'd give it for user friendliness and honesty in description. It was sticky and way too sweet for me. Read More

I followed directions as they are written. My family said it tasted good but was not dense enough to be a pound cake. Eggnog cake 4-5 stars. Read More

Well that was fun! The cake rose beautifully and then I tested it with a toothpick after 40 minutes and the cake fell to about 2 inches. So now I'm testing it again after 15 more minutes thinking maybe I can salvage it but I certainly can't serve it to guests. Well now that I have calmed down I have amended my review to 4 stars and not 5 because the cake fell however when I turned it out of the bundt pan it looked perfect I frosted it and served it to guests with rave reviews. Everyone said it was really really good! I'd like to make it again if someone can give any thoughts on why it fell in the middle. Read More

This cake smelled delicious and tasted very good but it was rather plain. It's a pound cake so there's nothing really spectacular about it. It's more on the subtle side. I did frost it with eggnog frosting and that helped intensify the eggnog flavor. If I make it again I'd consider making a fruit sauce to serve with it. Read More

we love this cake! as written! my husband especially and he hates egg nog. i put icing on mine..vanilla or butter cream and then sprinkle with a cinnamon sugar mixture. I've also modified this cake and replaced the ingredients with a vanilla milkshake instead of egg nog for other cakes and occassions and it was great Read More
