A bundt cake?! Who am I?! It’s pretty clear that I’m a lover of layers but there’s something to be said about a cake that comes together in no time flat without any finesse so to speak. And a bundt cake is exactly that. I’ve kept it even easier by using a cake mix as the base with a few “doctored-up” add-ins to level up this bundt cake from basic to Eggnog Bundt Cake ba-ZING-ga!

My Favourite Flavor of the Season
Eggnog: it’s not just a drink. it’s a way of life. 😉 I get irrationally excited when I spy that first carton of eggnog in the grocery store aisle. Eggnog protein shakes, eggnog pancakes, eggnog cookies, eggnog cake, eggnog straight up, and the best eggnog…served with a splash of rum. It’s safe to say that I am an eggnog gal. So when it comes to a quick festive dessert eggnog bundt cake only seemed natural.
An Easy Bundt Cake Recipe From A Box Mix
This eggnog bundt cake will whip up in no time. Seriously. First, you pretty much dump all the ingredients together in a bowl and go. Second, the trick to a bundt cake is greasing your pan liberally. I gave my bundt cake pan a generous once over with non-stick cooking spray and then another quick overall spray for good measure.
How To Remove a Bundt Cake
There’s no worse feeling than flipping your bundt cake over only to find it baked onto your pan with no hope of revival. Talk about Christmas grinch. So be as generous with your non-stick spray as you hope Santa is with the Christmas gifts. 😉 Oh and make sure you grab a bottle of cute holiday sprinkles too because…well…sprinkles are the equivalent of mermaids and unicorns in a bottle.
If you love eggnog as much as I do, I highly suggest trying out my Eggnog Snickerdoodle Cake.
