How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350. Grease the inside of a 10-inch bundt pan with shortening and dust with flour, or spray lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Set aside. Cream butter in a large bowl; with an electric mixer on moderate speed for 3 to 4 minutes. Add superfine sugar in three additions, beating I minute after each portion is added. Add eggs, one at a time, beating 45 seconds after each is added. Blend in vanilla extract.
  • On low speed, alternately add the dry ingredients in three additions with the eggnog in two additions, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Add rum and beat 30 seconds. ( The batter will be medium-thick and very creamy.) Spoon into prepared pan and lightly smooth top with the spatula. Bake on the center rack 55 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cake set in pan on a cooling rack for 10 minutes before un molding onto a rack.
  • To prepare Glaze:
  • While cake is cooling in pan, place butter, granulated sugar and rum in a non-reactive saucepan. Set over low heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Place rack with warm cake on a sheet of wax paper. Spoon glaze over cake in layers, using all of the glaze.
  • If you prefer not to have the rum glaze. Use Confectioners' Sugar for the coating.
