Chocolate Eggnog Cake

A chocolate cake mix, eggnog, a Jersey Milk chocolate bar and a splash of strong coffee.
Moist and delicious! 

Ingredients:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1/4 cup grape seed or vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup strong hot coffee
  • 1 100 gram milk chocolate chocolate bar ( I use Jersey Milk)
  • 1 box Swiss Chocolate cake mix
Method:
  1. Beat together first 3 ingredients.
  2. Break chocolate bar into small pieces, place into hot coffee and stir until completely melted.
  3. Add to eggnog mixture and beat until combined.
  4. Sift powdered cake mix into eggnog mixture and beat for another 2 minutes until ingredients are well combined.
  5. Grease two 9" cake pans or one 9x13" pan and then dust lightly with cocoa powder.
  6. Pour cake batter into prepared pans.
  7. Bake in oven pre heated to 350ยบ for 30-35 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back when lightly pressed on, or a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. 
  8. If using a 9x13" pan you may want to just leave the cake in the pan to cool.  Once cooled frost or serve with ice cream.
  9. If baked in rounds for a layered cake allow to cool for 5 minutes in pans and then invert onto cooling racks.
  10. Cool and frost with your favourite chocolate buttercream  or pudding and whipped cream frosting.

  2. I wonder if I could sub eggnog for milk in a regular chocolate cake recipe since I don't use cake mixes?

  3. What is a "Jersey Milk Chocolate Bar"? Is it a brand or is it a chocolate bar made from the milk of Jersey cows? I doubt we have those where I live in Texas. What can I use instead? Thanks!
