Spiced eggnog cake with rum butter cream icing

I was looking for a festive cake to bake for my family dinner at Christmas and threw this one together at the last minute. It was a hit a our dinner and requested again for next year.

Ingredients

  • 1 box spice cake mix 1 cup flour 1 cup sugar 1/2 tsp salt 3 eggs 2 tbsp veg oil 1 1/3 c eggnog 1 c sour cream a couple drops of LorAnn's eggnog flavour (optional) Butter cream icing 1 lb powdered sugar 1 c butter 3 - 4 tbls dark rum Shaved chocolate (optional)

Instructions

Mix cake mix, flour, sugar and salt until blended. Add wet ingredients and mix for 2 mins. If batter seems too thick add a bit of water or milk. Bake in two 9" rounds for 45 - 60 mins at 325. Make butter cream icing using rum instead of milk or water. I added a few more drops of eggnog flavour too. Fill and frost layers and top with shaved white or semi sweet chocolate.

OMGosh this sounds super yummy.. Though I think I will opt for a vanilla butter cake and grind my own fresh nutmeg and other spices. Nuttin better then fresh ground. -wink-
