Brandy and Eggnog Bundt Cake is a fun recipe for a timeless holiday dessert. We’re baking a cake with all the flavors of the Christmas season: eggnog, butter, nutmeg, vanilla, and a touch of brandy, in a fluffy cake with a golden crust, thanks to the classic bundt pan. I’m also telling you about Amoretti’s Eggnog Brandy Compound and the secret behind our creative recipes.
Hello my friends. Even though we’re in Florida, I can feel the cold northern winds already. This means it’s time to get some winter baking done. The holiday season is here, and you know what? We’re excited! This is our favorite time of the year because it’s the only time Geoffrey and I share the kitchen at the same time.
Today we’re combining two of our most cherished memories of the get-togethers with family - Geoffrey’s holiday craving for eggnog and my heartfelt passion for classic bundt cakes. The fact that the eggnog is mixed with a splash of brandy doesn’t hurt either, as it keeps you warm and cozy. We are actually including an eggnog and brandy substitute you're gonna love. The result is a beautiful Brandy Eggnog Bundt Cake that just screams for cold weather. Besides, nothing keeps you warmer than baking some treats, especially with your loved ones.
Today we’re creating the classic (and very Instagrammable) bundt cake. Did you know the bundt pan was invented in the 1950s by a man named H. David Dalquist in Minnesota? By the '60s, he was making and selling 30,000 pans a day; that’s an influencer right there.
We’re sure you have at least one bundt cake mold somewhere, because we all do for some strange reason. Truth be told, we have several different shapes and sizes of bundt cake molds. We don’t use them enough though, and that changes today. Bundt cakes will never fall out of fashion, they’re just too beautiful!
What’s also quite cool is that we’re using Eggnog Brandy Compound by Amoretti. This is an all-natural, shelf-stable compound, with no high fructose sugar. It’s still good even after opened, and according to Geoffrey, a so-called expert on the topic, it has bloody good eggnog flavor!
This whole bundt cake project takes just over two hours, although you’re only actively doing anything for half an hour. Therefore, there's time to catch up with your cooking (or eating) buddies over a glass of eggnog because that’s what baking is all about. No, not drinking, spending time with your kin.

Some people ask me how I come up with inventive recipes so often, and after giving it a little thought, I’ve come to realize it’s all about having the proper ingredients in hand.
Having a natural Greek olive oil, for example, invites you to cook. When you have a jar of artisan fig mustard, herbal teas, or holiday spreads, creativity flows, and then the magic happens!
That’s kinda what happened with today’s brandy eggnog bundt cake. Having Amoretti’s Eggnog Brandy Compound in your pantry, a gorgeous product, really makes it easy to see where you want to go with your recipe. You don’t have eggnog brandy compound? Don’t worry! In the recipe card, we provide the amounts of eggnog and brandy you can use so you can still make this brandy eggnog bundt cake this weekend.
If you are ever interested in cooking or baking, but don’t know what to do, just browse around and see which products call your attention, assemble your gourmet pantry, and just start cooking.
