Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes


  • 1/2 cup Butter, unsalted, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup eggnog either spiked or not, your choice
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg can add more depending on personal preference
  • 2 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons bourbon depending on how thin you want your glaze


  1. Preheat oven to 330F.
  2. Spray baking spray a 13x4-inch baking loaf pan (you can use 8x8 as well).
  3. In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  4. In a separate bowl add the eggnog, sour cream, vanilla extract, and eggs and whisk until fully combined.
  5. In another bowl add flour, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Alternate adding dry ingredients to the butter and sugar mixture, then wet, until you finish with dry. Mix on low until fully combined. Be careful to not over-mix.
  7. Pour 1/3 of the cake batter into the pan. Then sprinkle with 4 tbsp of cinnamon sugar. Then 1/3 batter and 4 tbsp cinnamon sugar. Top with remaining batter. Using a knife swirl the cinnamon sugar to incorporate in batter.
  8. Bake for 45-55 minutes depending on your oven. Check by using a wooden skewer or knife to see if it comes out clean. If you are using an 8x8 pan your cooking time will probably be less.

  2. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Pour over cooled cake.
