I've made it over 37 weeks with this pregnancy and all I want this holiday season is eggnog. True, creamy, sinful Eggnog. And a healthy baby boy, of course. I suppose my mommy-instinct is stronger than my craving, and I've come to accept that there will be no egg yolk or rum filled drinks for this gal this year.
I bought a "Soy-nog" from the store, but it was absolutely terrible. How did I think it would ever be good? So I turned to Pinterest. Now that's laughable, isn't it? Not that Pinterest isn't anything but amazing, but somehow I've pinned dozens of gorgeous and delicious-sounding vegan 'nogs, but still just can't seem to find the time to even purchase the ingredients needed to make my own. Funny how that happens, right? I suppose there is always next week..... Wait, Christmas is NEXT WEEK? Better run off to finish my shopping and wrapping gifts instead. In the meantime, let's all enjoy this Eggnog Spice Cake:
"In this cake, layers of spice cake have been smothered in creamy eggnog filling and enrobed in silky buttercream. The browned butter adds a nutty, warm element to the classic cake and the slight tang of the cream cheese in the filling balances everything out. Since fillings and frostings can become super-sugary very quickly, this Swiss meringue buttercream is the perfect way to add rich creaminess without being too sweet. Garnish with bits of toffee candy and serve with a warm mug of eggnog."
