Eggnog Coffee Cake

My first step into anything with eggnog happened last year.  I first made these Eggnog muffins, that were a big hit all around.  I have made them again this year, and they are currently in my freezer.  The other thing I tried last year was a coffee cake.  It was another huge hit.  But, I didn’t make it until January, so it was way past eggnog posting season :)

My 7 year old remembered both the coffee cake and the muffins, and requested them as soon as he saw eggnog in the store.  So this year, I am posting in prime eggnog season!  My son loves this so much, he is already requesting that we make it again.  I am thinking of trying to freeze some of it this time; anyone know if that will work?  Very similar texture to quick breads and muffins, so I can’t see it being a problem.

This is full of nutmeg and eggnog flavor.  It would be a perfect breakfast to have waiting for you on Christmas morning.  You could bake it up the night before, and just reheat in the oven for a few minutes to have a fresh and warm breakfast.  Even if you are not an eggnog drinker (none of us here are), trust me, you will LOVE this coffee cake!
