Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Beat cake mix, 1 1/4 cups eggnog, eggs, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in a bowl using an electric mixer on low until batter is blended. Increase speed to medium and beat for 2 more minutes. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Beat butter and cream cheese together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Gradually beat confectioners' sugar, alternating with small amounts of 1/4 cup eggnog and ending with confectioners' sugar, into butter mixture using an electric mixer on low speed until icing is smooth and fluffy. Beat 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg into icing until incorporated; spread over cooled cupcakes.

Okay, I'm convinced - these cupcakes are fragrant with the aroma of eggnog as they bake and when you bite into one you are most definitely tasting eggnog as well. The flavor is delicious but I am not a fan of the cupcake itself. Clearly the reason these are so flavorful of eggnog is because so much of it is used in the batter. Unfortunately, however, I missed the butter that was cut from the package directions in order to accomplish that. The texture is just off. Yes, they are dense like a pound cake, but there is no crumb to speak of and they're not tender - just dense with the texture resembling that of a sponge. There simply is not enough fat in the eggnog to eliminate the butter that otherwise would have, and should have, been included. Now the frosting, on the other hand, is perfect and beautiful. The proportions of each of the ingredients is spot on, right up to and including the eggnog - and I enthusiastically rate it five stars. Still, the frosting cannot make up for the cupcake underneath it, so overall, I unfortunately cannot rate this any higher than 3 stars.

Super easy but fancy! Eggnog and nutmeg add perfect holiday flavor. Dense, moist cake and thick yet light frosting.
