This is a tasty frosting to accompany our Rum & Eggnog Bundt Cake recipe. You can use real rum or rum extract. I think a nice spiced rum gives this recipe that extra little something!
Eggnog Cream Cheese Frosting
- 4 oz cream cheese room temperature
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp rum or rum extract
- 2 tbsp eggnog room temperature
Beat cream cheese and butter until pale and fluffy. Add powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time. Add rum and eggnog. Beat until fully combined.
Pour the frosting over cooled cake and sprinkle with nutmeg if desired.
“Tis the season!
The season for cakes and cookies and pies and brownies and hot cocoa and mulled wine and spiced cider and hot toddies and cold weather and gifts and visitors and sharing meals and breaking bread and telling stories…so many good things about the holiday season. We love sharing a little bit of sweetness each weekend at The Kitchen Company and, as busy as it can be, the holiday season doesn’t change that for us. Last week we shared so many different goodies but the Rum & Eggnog Bundt Cake was certainly a highlight! If you were able to get a sample, we hope you enjoyed it. If not, below is the recipe for you to make your own.
We hope your holiday season is wonderful!
