Lemon Eggnog Pound Cake

Lemon Eggnog Pound Cake is one spring recipe you need to try. It’s spring and that means it’s time for lemon desserts and eggnog? Yep, Eggnog.

I paired my favorite Lemon Pound Cake recipe with the creamy, nutmeg flavors of Eggnog right into the batter. This is now a Lemon Eggnog Pound Cake and the texture is super moist and springy from the creaminess of the eggnog. The flavor of this Eggnog Pound Cake is a mix of lemon custard mixed with a hint of cinnamon. It’s so good!
