My (Healthier) Eggnog Cake with Olive Oil will truly put you in the Christmas spirit! It’s delicate & moist, sweet & decadent, and each bite will take you to Santa’s village. 🤶🏻 Your oven will radiate the most scrumptious smell as these cake layer bake, and your family will be creeping into the kitchen to see what you're baking. The best part is that you can truly taste the eggnog in each and every bite! What is not to love about this cake?!
Fun fact: In the past three weeks, I have made this cake THREE times. As much as I should probably be ashamed, it is just to DARN DELICIOUS!
However, not every recipe (especially the videos) turn out perfect (watch the video below to see). But, NEVER let a stumble in the road be the end of the journey. Pick yourself up and continue to move forward!
I topped my (Healthier) Eggnog Cake with Olive Oil with homemade sugar cookies that were cut out into trees, then decorated them accordingly. It was the perfect little addition to make the cake extra FESTIVE! Of course, I couldn't help myself but to add glittering sprinkles to the cookies, as well.
Another cheap alternative is to add rosemary twigs upside down, then dust with powdered sugar. It really does replicate a real tree that has been sprinkled in snow!
I truly hope you all enjoy this recipe! It is actually MY FAVORITE cake recipe to this day! Merry Christmas! xxL
With that said, I think it's time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness!
