Bourbon Soaked Eggnog Fruitcake Pound Cake: Dense traditional pound cake filled with bourbon soaked candied fruit and pecans all topped with an eggnog glaze.
If you are reading this and it’s before December 21st at around 5pm-ish PST know that I am running frantically around my house trying to clean.
The family comes on Friday.
Which is great.
Minus the fact that my mom and I have different clean definitions.
Mine definition is “Excuse the mess, our standards have lowered with each dog” and “there appears to have been a struggle”.
My mother’s definition involves my mother cleaning blinds with Q-tips and all my childhood toys going in tape outlines so everything was in it’s place.
Think Monica from Friends.
I aim for just slightly above terrifying for her. 🙂
With a super clean toilet. 😀
I just make sure to leave her cleaning supplies out.
Not because I want her to clean but because I know it will drive her crazy not too. 😛
Luckily, I don’t take it personally.
And she doesn’t actually bug me about it, I’ve just learned the signs over the years. 😀
But I so look forward to seeing them.
I always enjoy cooking with my mom so I can’t wait for that.
This is a basic pound cake with holiday flare.
The same fruit I used for the cupcakes I used in here.
If you are not a fan of eggnog you can add milk or even more bourbon to make the glaze.
Serve with ice cream is my suggestion.
I served mine with a local spiked eggnog ice cream.
