  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup eggnog
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons eggnog


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Using a mixer on medium speed, mix the butter until smooth. Add the granulated sugar and cream together until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the eggs and mix until combined.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, nutmeg.
  • Slowly add to the batter a little at a time and mix just until it comes together.
  • Mix in the vanilla and ¾ cup eggnog.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes or until golden and a cake tester comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the cake to rest on a cooling rack for 15 minutes in the pan before removing the cake and allowing it to cool completely.
  • For the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons eggnog. For thinner glaze add less eggnog, for thicker add more eggnog.
  • Spoon the glaze over the cooled eggnog pound cake. Allow the glaze to thicken and set before serving.
