Eggnog Bundt Cake

There was an easy bundt cake recipe featured in the Relish magazine that comes in the Sunday newspaper.  They often feature delicious looking treats and I clip the interesting ones and add them to my ever growing recipe box.  The recipe can be found here at

I didn't have a spice cake mix or vanilla yogurt on hand, and I forgot to check the recipe before I headed to the store today, so I substituted sour cream and a teaspoon of vanilla extract for the yogurt and used a butter pecan cake mix and added a teaspoon of cinnamon for the spice.  I also used some spiced candied pecan pieces to add a bit of sweetness and chose Southern Comfort Vanilla Spice eggnog because it is insanely good on its own.  Because of the changes I added a few minutes to the baking time.  50 minutes was just enough to have the cake be golden and done in the center.

They suggested you could cover it in a light dusting of powdered sugar, but I thought it could use a glaze to add sweetness.  The glaze is simply 3/4 cup of powdered sugar and a couple of tablespoons of Fireball whiskey.  I think it came out pretty swell!

I always feel like Betty Crocker when I whip up a Bundt cake, and I fully admit to humming "Somewhere That's Green" while I made this.  Truly, I like to imagine that I'm Ellen Green from the Little Shop of Horrors as often as possible so this isn't odd behavior.  She's flawless.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Mine went way too fast!
