Eggnog Liqueur Cake

Many people already know about Eierlikörkuchen from a German grandma – who, of course, has made the world’s best. Same recipe can be used as Rumkuchen (Rum cake)

Incidentally, those cakes are often made with an oil and butter mixture. This creates a very special moisture. In the classic version, it is baked in a Gugelhupf form. But even in the spring or larger pound cake pan, this cake will look and taste delicious.

If Eggnog Liqueur is not available, mix Eggnog and brown Rum or make your own Eierlikör from scratch. If you decide to make a Rum cake, just substitute eggnog liqueur with plain brown rum.

If you like it sweet, make holes with a toothpick on top of the warm cake, drip the glaze over it. If there are only adults eating cake, use a meat injection syringe and push liquor inside the hot/warm cake after you take it out of the oven.

For this recipe I used a large Guglhupf form about 9.5″. This cake will taste better the next day, so wrap it in some plastic foil overnight.
