I'd personally do a white base myself. Maybe with a little nutmeg or some other spice added in.

I'm from South America, so I can't think of chocolate eggnog. It's gotta be a white cake for us.

Here's one adapted from Rose Levy Beranbaum that you might be able to adapt to your white cake recipe.

Also, our spanish eggnog is thicker and richer, called rompope. There's a tres leches cake, made with a rich eggnog syrup that you might be able to use to just moist your cupcakes with (inject them).

Recipe for the eggnog:

The syrup is here (in the middle)

chocolate seems weird to combine with eggnog. definitely white cake! I want to do one too sometime this Christmas season, I love eggnog!

I do a WASC with eggnog instead of sour cream, a dram of loranne eggnog flavor, and half a tsp of nutmeg. Yum!!!

Oh wow. I was thinking of subbing eggnog for the water! icon_redface.gif Would that have been a mess?

Actually, maybe if I sub eggnog for BOTH the water and the sour cream... Does anyone have any thoughts if that would work?

Sheri, I don't know much about egg mpg but if it has a high sugar content you will need to cut back on the sugar you add to the wasc or it will sink. I think I'll try this as well for Xmas...sounds for what flavor frosting? Just nutmeg? More eggnog? Possibilities possibilitiesicon_smile.gif

Not at all...I just made an eggnog cake and subbed out the water with eggnog...and added a 1/4 tsp of nutmeg! It was delicious and very "eggnoggy" icon_smile.gif

Good point about the sugar! But ya know, I've been sitting here thinking about it. What's in eggnog? (Kind of a rhetorical question) It's milk, cream (fat), eggs, sugar, spices... The same general extra stuff added to WASC. So ummmm, call me crazy, but I'd ALMOST consider just making a "WASC" with nothing but the cake mix, the extra flour, and enough eggnog to cover the rest of the normally added other ingredients! icon_lol.gif

Welllllllll, maybe I'd add another egg. icon_rolleyes.gif

I'm thinking a rum SMBC might go nicely with an eggnog cake. Hot buttered rum, even. Wonder if you could use brown sugar instead of white?

Darn it, Big-G! Why did you have to go and start this thread? I LOVE eggnog!

Eggnog mousse filling: vanilla pudding mix, 1 c eggnog, 1 cup whipping cream, dash of cinnamon. YUM! I use a thinner version in a trifle-type dessert as well, with cherry pie filling, pound cake drizzled with spiced rum and whipped cream. Happy happy icon_smile.gif

I've done it with gingerbread filling (basically adding spices to a whipped filling), gingersnap filling (SO good!!! chopping up little pieces of gingersnap into the filling), white chocolate filling, and vanilla mousse.

I was thinking of making eggnog cupcakes. I was just going to make the low fat recipe on the back of duncan hines white cake mix and sub the water for eggnog and then sprinkle the buttercream with fresh nutmeg topped with a fondant snowflake icon_smile.gif.

I make egg nog cupcakes every Christmas, but mine aren't based on an extended mix recipe (no extra flour, sour cream, etc) so I can't help you there. I just replace the water/milk called for in my basic white recipe with a cup of egg nog and 1/3 cup rum. They're always a HUGE hit and are great with spiced rum (Captain Morgan) buttercream and just a tiny sprinkle of nutmeg on top!!
