I am not a big fan of egg nog but I buy it every year for Richard and the girls. I like the taste of egg nog but I think it is to thick to drink. So because it is in the house I was trying to think of a way to use it. So what better way than to make a cake. So I combined a few recipes from other cake recipes I already had and changed them up a little and came up with this, and if I do say so myself this is a very good cake.
