Perfect Cake for Holidays by @Connie_Vines

Everyone bakes for the holidays, but what if you're the kind of person who can't boil water much less bake something?

Never fear. There's help for novices too.

I'm sharing my secret receipt for a cake so easy and delicious that everyone will proclaim it a Showstopper just as they do on the Great British Baking Show.

(Have you seen that competition for the Best Baker in all of the United Kingdom? It's on Netflix so watch it. You'll be amazed and totally addicted to watching these amateur bakers produce amazing creations from flour, sugar, eggs, and butter.)

On with the baking. Here's my recipe for a cake you'll want to bake during the holidays. In fact, it's the perfect cake for New Year's Eve which is just around the corner.

Eggnog Pound Cake

Ingredients
  • 1 package of yellow cake mix
  • 1 (4-serving size) package instant vanilla pudding
  • 3/4 cup Eggnog from the dairy case
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Powdered sugar (optional)
Directions
  1. Prepare a Bundt pan or a 10-inch fluted tube pan by greasing it with butter or shortening then lightly dusting flour into it. Or use Baker's Joy spray.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggnog, and oil.
  4. Beat on low speed until moistened.
  5. Add eggs and nutmeg, and beat at medium-high speed 4 Minutes.
  6. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  7. Bake 40 - 45 minutes until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
  8. Cool in pan for 10 minutes.
  9. Remove from pan onto cooling rack. Cool completely then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  10. Store covered leftovers at room temperature.
While you're waiting for the cake to cool, why not check out my fun, edgy romance novella, Here Today, Zombie Tomorrow?

Alive, Steampunk novelist Meredith Misso worked hard at living the perfect SoCal celeb life.

Now that she is a Zombie, it’s all about the make-up, non-vegan lifestyle, and her soon-to-be ex, who somehow managed to Velcro himself back into her life.

Happy Reading and Happy Cake Baking and Eating!
