Eggnog Pound Cake

Need an easy Christmasy dessert? Here you go.

Eggnog Pound Cake
From Southern Living.
Makes twelve servings.

1 (16-oz.) package pound cake mix
1 1/4 cups eggnog
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350°. Beat all ingredients together at low speed with an electric mixer until blended. Increase speed to medium, and beat 2 minutes. Pour into a lightly greased 9- x 5-inch loaf pan. (Or use a different pan and cook according to pound cake mix box directions. I used a holiday style Bundt pan.)

Bake at 350° for 1 hour to 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour). (I dusted mine with powdered sugar before servings.)
