Maybe you have already guessed from my previous post what this year’s Christmas recipes could be? Starbucks brought back four Christmas beverages this season and I wanted to create a cake recipe for each Red Cup flavor. To make it more fun and festive, I created a cake ball recipe so you can eat and enjoy your favorite Starbucks flavor with your coffee at home.
Eggnog cake is a simple yet delicious dessert for the holiday season. I generally don’t like to make bundt cakes. There is always the fear that the cake won’t come out of the tin. But this time I made sure to grease every tiny corner of the tin and it came out very easily. The tedious greasing is definitely worth it, as the bundt shape makes the eggnog cake even more appealing.
I have a confession to make: I don’t like eggnog… on its own at least. I would never drink a cup of eggnog. I do however love the taste of eggnog in cakes, cupcakes, muffins and donuts of course. And there is something about mini donuts, that make them taste even better than regular donuts. Maybe it is the fact that you won’t feel as guilty when you eat more than you should.
