Mini Eggnog Bundt Cakes with Eggnog Sugar Glaze

Eggnog is one of our favorite holiday drinks and an ingredient we use the most for baking this time of year from eggnog cookies, eggnog fudge, eggnog cheesecake and now these mini bundt cakes. You could do a regular size bundt cake for this recipe but I think the mini ones are so darn cute.

Easy Mini Eggnog Bundt Cakes

I like simple recipes with not that many steps and this recipe is that. I used my lazy day cake recipe with some tweaking of adding eggnog in place of milk and then the necessary spices of nutmeg and cinnamon. For the eggnog sugar glaze, I used my eggnog icing recipe. Usually it takes me a few times to get the recipe to perfection but this one I nailed it on the first try. It was a hit with my family and I think you will enjoy it too!

What is a Bundt Cake?

A bundt cake is a different kind of cake and has more of a doughnut shape. The purpose of a bundt cake is that the cakes bakes more evenly with it’s donut shape as the cake is spread out more to the edges of the pan therefore the cake is more light and airy.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Make sure to add the egg one at a time and mix in between.
  • Don’t overmix. 
  • If the sugar glaze is too runny add just a little bit more sugar and combine.
  • Follow the instructions step by step to get the best looking and tasting cakes.
  • Use non-stick cooking spray or a dusting of flour in the bundt pan to prevent cakes from sticking.
