The best time to whip up egg nog in a recipe is winter! Cupcakes: 1 (16 ounce) box white cake mix 1¼ cups egg nog 2 eggs ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg ½ teaspoon vanilla extract Frosting: ½ cup butter, softened to room temperature ¼ cup egg nog 1 teaspoon vanilla ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg 4 to 5 cups powdered sugar (until you reach desired consistency) Instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, egg nog, eggs, nutmeg and vanilla. Whisk together until just combined. 2. Spoon batter into a mini cupcake pan filled with paper liners or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Fill each cupcake ⅔ of the way full. 3. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until barely golden brown. 4. Remove from oven and let cool completely. For the frosting: 1. In a large bowl, cream together butter, egg nog, vanilla, and nutmeg. 2. Mix in powdered sugar one cup at a time. 3. Spread or pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes.
I really don't like egg nog,but my dad does, so looks like I'll need to try to make them for him!
Would it be weird if I add some dark chocolate chips on this?
I've never had egg nog but these cupcakes look delicious!
Egg nog, vanilla and nutmeg sounds great together! Although I would add cinnamon to kick up the taste.
