I think I'm going to make this for Thanksgiving
Doesn't this sound YUMMY!
Eggnog cake recipe is spiced with nutmeg.
2 cups sifted cake flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/3 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs plus milk to make 3/4 cup
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Put eggs in a measuring cup with enough milk to make 3/4 cup; beat into dry ingredients with the shortening until smooth. Beat in remaining 2/3 cup milk and vanilla.
Pour batter into 3 greased and floured 8-inch baking pans. Bake in preheated 350° oven for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for about 5 minutes; remove to racks to cool completely. Frost with your favorite frosting with rum or vanilla flavoring, and decorate top with candied red and green cherries, if desired.
