Homemade Eggnog

Make your own eggnog at home and modify the spices to your preferences!

Homemade Eggnog

Upon returning from the holiday break I finally decided it was time to try baking something with Eggnog. Even though it’s not my favorite beverage to drink by itself, I was convinced it would be good cooked into something. However, the grocery stores were all out of eggnog. I suppose this should not have been a surprise but I had hoped there would be some leftovers on sale. Thankfully there are recipes to make your own at home, so I did! Who says you cannot have eggnog post-Christmas?

This recipe caught my eye because it uses lower fat milk and just the egg yolks in order to maintain the richness known to be associated with eggnog. Not that I truly have any standards in my eggnog since like I already said, I don’t drink it (unless it’s spiked). But I suppose that means it will work very well in any recipe I desire to make which calls for eggnog in the ingredient list.

I agree – eggnog is a little too heavy for me to drink, but I love to bake with it! Thanks for sharing!

This recipe sounds easy, thanks for sharing it! I also dont like eggnog unless it’s spiked. But I’d like to bake with it!

I don’t drink much eggnog but it is fun to bake with around the holidays. I’ll have to remember this next year when it comes time for holiday baking – I bet I could make a smaller batch so I didn’t have to throw away half a carton that I bought at the store :)
