While the cake is still warm out of the oven you are going to use the handle of a wooden spoon and poke holes throughout. TRUST ME.
Pour the eggnog pudding mix right over the cake and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Top the cake with the whipped topping and a sprinkle of nutmeg to finish it off! Serve with a glass of Promised Land Dairy Old-Fashioned Eggnog. It’s easy to spread holiday cheer with our flavorful Old-Fashioned Eggnog
Eggnog Poke Cake
- 1 box White cake mix
- 2 large egg
- ½ Cup Vegetable oil
- 1 Cup Eggnog
FOR THE TOPPING
- 2 Cups Eggnog
- 3.4 oz Instant Vanilla pudding mix box
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- ½ tsp Nutmeg
- 2 Cups whipped cream Whipped Topping
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Combine vanilla cake mix with eggs, vegetable oil, and Promised Land DairyOld-Fashioned Eggnog.
- Beat until well mixed. Bake at 350° F in a greased and floured 9×13” pan for 20-25 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the middle of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, you cake is done.
- Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes. While the cake is still warm, take the end of a wooden spoon or other round object and poke holes all over the top of your cake.
- Immediately after, prepare the pudding topping. Combine vanilla pudding, Promised Land Dairy Old-Fashioned Eggnog, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix until pudding is dissolved. Do not allow pudding the get firm. Pour wet pudding over top of the cake and then put the cake directly in the refrigerator. The pudding will soak into the cake and get firm while refrigerating. Allow the cake to sit in the fridge for at least 15- 30 minutes to set and cool. Longer is best.
- Top cake with Cool Whip or fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg. Serve.
I made this with a yellow cake mix. I added 1/4 bourbon pudding mixture.
The pudding mixture firms up fast!! so you have to work fast. Mine didn’t soak in all the way but it didn’t matter, It was delicious. The cake is amazingly light and fluffy. I wish I could buy eggnog year round because this would make a great year round dessert
