One of my favorite things about the holiday season is eggnog. I love eggnog! It’s creamy, festive, and spiced with one of my favorite flavors – nutmeg. 

I make an Eggnog Quick Bread recipe around the holidays that never fails me. So when I saw the Holiday Eggnog Cake with Apricot Filling recipe in Anne Byrn’s The Cake Mix Doctor Returns! I had to try it.

I made a few tweaks to the recipe to accommodate my taste: French Vanilla cake mix, canola oil instead of vegetable oil, strawberry-blackberry preserves instead of apricot fruit spread, and of course more nutmeg! (Click for recipe.)

The result was a delicious holiday treat that makes a nice finish to a special meal or a tasty addition to a holiday dessert buffet! For something simpler, this Eggnog Quick Bread is a great option. I’ve got more eggnog in my frig, and I can’t wait to bake another eggnog / nutmeg treat!
