I like milk, but I am really not a milk drinker. I use milk in my cereal, oatmeal, and of course for dunking cookies. Same with eggnog. I like eggnog, but not drinking it straight up. I like the flavor, but it is a little thick for me and I guess I am really not a drinker of anything. I really only drink water and sparkling water. I know, I am boring:)

I recently bought some eggnog at the store, not for drinking, but for baking. My friend asked me if I could make her my Eggnog Streusel Muffins. I love baking for others so I was happy to oblige! I didn’t use all of the eggnog for the muffins and I knew I wasn’t going to drink it so I made another eggnog treat! I didn’t want it to go to waste! This time I baked an Eggnog White Chocolate Streusel Cake.

  1. Although I love drinking eggnog, I can usually only handle about 1 glass a holiday season b/c it is SO rich. The rest is perfect for baking like this!

  2. We like to drink egg nog here…and we love using it in all kinds of recipes. I’ll have to add this one to the bunch!
