Eggnog Pound Cake
I'm literally obsessed with eggnog guys.
I made this amazing dairy free eggnog recipe a few weeks ago and it's been on my mind since.
I'm basically always thinking about food.. like non stop.
Sometimes when I'm trying to fall asleep at night I'll randomly say to by boyfriend "what do you think of ______? maybe I could make _____ with it? Wouldn't that taste delicious?".
I'm always thinking and even though I don't remember my dreams often, I would probably say that most of them are about food too.
I also really like making recipes using my other recipes too. It's a really satisfying feeling once it's all come together and you get to sit down and enjoy your final product.
This recipe is not dependant on my dairy free eggnog recipe I have linked, but I highly suggest it! It will increase amino acids, reduce sugar levels, and it tastes freaking amazing so why not right?
I've brought this cake to work to snack on when I need some extra energy and it's been so great because the high fiber and protein content keeps me going for HOURS. Especially with the additional collagen powder (which is optional but I recommend adding it for the nutritional benefits!) it is a nutritious and satisfying snack that is sure to satisfy your Christmas sweet tooth!
For the cake:
1 C coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp butter (or coconut oil)
1 1/2 C eggnog (try my dairy free recipe!)
*2 tbsp Organika collagen powder
5 eggs, whisked
3 tbsp honey
*Optional but highly recommended! Each tbsp has 8g of protein and adding collagen makes this cake oh so nourishing and gut loving.
For the icing:
1/2 C powdered sugar (I used Swerve brand powdered Erythitol)
3 tbsp eggnog
pinch of nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350° and line a loaf baking dish with parchment paper.
In a medium sized bowl, combine the coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Take the butter and cut it in as you would a pie crust.
(Take a rubber spatula and combine the butter until it is in small pea sized balls)
In another bowl, whisk the collagen powder in with the eggnog, then whisk in the eggs and honey.
Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix together well.
Transfer to baking dish and spread until even.
Bake for 45-55 minutes.
Store covered in fridge for 4 days.
