Mmmmmmm eggnog. One of my favorite holiday flavors.
How about you? Are you an eggnog lover? I know it tends to be an all or nothing kind of thing. Either you love it, or despise it.
I love it spiked, not spiked, in my coffee, and now in this amazingly moist and delicious Eggnog Pound Cake.
I know we have barely gotten over our post Thanksgiving turkey comas, but I am sooooo excited for Christmas this year I couldn't even wait for the 1st of December to start decorating! I swear I am just a big ol' overgrown kid when it comes to Christmas, but this year it is even more so because the G-baby is old enough to really enjoy it.
Last year we propped her up to open presents, and she was more interested in the wrapping paper than the actual presents. This year is going to be a blast.
Going to see Santa, although I think there might be a chance of freak out with this since she is a bit shy with new people.
Going to see Christmas lights has always been a family tradition, so it will be fun to do it with her.
Baking Christmas cookies, hopefully Kylee with help stir instead of just eating the cookie dough!
I think she is a bit to young for another one of our traditions, watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. We usually watch it ohhhhh a minimum of 3 to 4 times.
She did however pick out The Year Without a Santa as a movie to watch the last time she was here. I was uber excited because I totally geek out over the old Christmas shows. Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer (Bumbles bounce!), Frosty the Snowman, A Charlie Brown Christmas, all of those shows from my childhood
Do you have a favorite?
But, this cake, shall we just take a moment to discuss it?
It is amazeballs!
I am a huge pound cake lover, and am not proud to admit that I have been know to consume most of a loaf all on my own #dontjudge
But when it is as good as this?
Moist, with that perfect pound cake texture, and deeeeelicious eggnog flavor?
I dare you not to want to keep it all to yourself!
