All-year round our guests enjoy inn-baked treats, made inn our kitchen, from scratch!  …and at Holiday time, its no different. We nod to the seasonality of ingredients, so at Christmastime, we are happy to share our Egg Nog Cake recipe.  Its always a crowd pleaser, even for those folks who THINK they don’t like egg nog.  So here it is, from our kitchen to yours!

Main Street Manor’s Egg Nog Cake

½ c. softened butter

3 large eggs

1 t vanilla extract

2 c. all purpose unbleached flour

2 ½ t baking powder

¾ t salt

1 c egg nog

Confectioners sugar

Whisk together dry ingredients and grate in nutmeg, about ¼ t and set aside. Beat butter until creamy and gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time.  Blend in vanilla and rum. Add butter mixture alternately with egg nog, beating until smooth. Alternate blending wet & dry ingredients. Turn into greased and floured 10 inch tube pan.  Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes or until done.  Cool in pan for 15 minutes.  Remove from pan and top with a bit more grated nutmeg and then with powdered sugar.
