The seasonal flavor of eggnog unites with creamy chocolate to make a jolly ole dessert for the holidays.
Baking and assembling a layer cake can be intimidating - it seems so flawless in pictures. But this made-from-scratch cake comes together easily with the help of a stand mixer. Trust us, the end result is well worth the time it takes to prepare.
Once the batter is made, the cake bakes on a 17x15x1-inch baking pan, filling your home with the sweet and spicy scents of chocolate and nutmeg.
After the cake bakes and cools, it’s cut widthwise into three equal pieces. Beginning with the bottom base, spread half the filling onto the layer. Then, top with the second layer and repeat.
Next comes the frosting. Spiced with vanilla, rum and nutmeg, our basic buttercream frosting is brought up a notch and transformed into a memorable holiday treat.
Elegant, festive and flavorful, this dessert puts a twist on traditional and adds a little joy to any seasonal gathering.
