Eggnog Bundt Cakes


What you’ll need…


¾ cup milk

¼ cup cream

½ tsp nutmeg

¼ tsp cinnamon

1 egg yolk

2 tbsp caster sugar

1 tbsp rum


½ cup SUNBEAM Currants

1 tbsp rum

125g butter, diced and softened

¾ cup caster sugar

2 extra large eggs

1½ cups plain flour

½ tsp baking powder

1 cup eggnog


1 cup pure icing sugar, sifted

1 tbsp reserved eggnog

1-2 tbsp water


  1. For eggnog, combine milk, cream, spices and vanilla in a small saucepan. Heat gently. Meanwhile whisk together the yolk and sugar. Gradually add warmed milk mixture to egg until all combined. Return to saucepan and continue cooking over a low heat until hot and slightly thickened. Remove, stir in rum and set aside to cool. Reserve 1 tablespoon for icing.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Lightly grease 6 x 1 cup capacity bundt tins and place onto a flat baking tray.
  3. Combine currants and rum. Set aside. Place butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until creamy and pale. Add eggs one at a time until well combined. Add dry ingredients and eggnog alternately until well combined and mixture is smooth. Spoon between prepared pans and bake for 25 minutes until golden and cooked through. Turn out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  4. Mix together the icing sugar, reserved eggnog, water and some additional nutmeg if you prefer. Drizzle over cooled bundt cakes and finish with fresh cherries.
