Eggnog Spice Cake

I'm back. The past few months have been full of sadness, hurt, and anxiety. I haven't been cooking. I haven't even been eating or sleeping much. But, things are looking up now and I am hopeful for a happier future.

I was finally inspired to cook something by Davidson's Safest Choice EggsDozen Days of Nog event. I made a spice cake with eggnog instead of milk. It was dessert at a holiday lunch I hosted for some school friends.

I had planned to make an eggnog buttercream to frost this cake, but after tasting it I decided it didn't need any frosting. If you wanted something extra, I suggest a dollop of eggnog whipped cream.

It felt good to be back in the kitchen and to be feeding the people I love. I hope to do more of that in the coming weeks.

Happy Holidays!
