The 12 Days of Baking

I love to bake, and usually in December I'm spending lots of quality time with my Kitchen Aid anyway, so I've decided to start Project The 12 Days of Baking. I'll bake some of my holiday favorites, along with several new recipes that I've been wanting to try. I hope you'll check back often to see what's been going on in my kitchen. 

First up, Eggnog Pound Cake. I saw it in this month's Southern Living and knew immediately that I would have to try it out. Most people either love eggnog or hate it. I happen to love it, so this really appealed to me. It's rich, yet light, and the eggnog flavor isn't too overpowering. The best part is, it's super easy and is made from only 5 ingredients!

On the first day of Christmas, my true love baked for me....

Eggnog Pound Cake

5 simple ingredients: 1 16oz package pound cake mix, 1 1/4 cups eggnog, 2 large eggs, 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg and 1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix everything together and beat for 2 minutes

Pour into lightly greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour. 

Garnish with powdered sugar and serve!
