eggnog crumble coffee cake

This easy eggnog coffee cake is Christmas in a pan.  Seriously...  the whole house smells amazing and full of holiday cheer.

Eggnog, eggnog, eggnog!!

Have I told you how much I love eggnog?

I have??  Well, ok then!

This eggnog coffee cake makes me want to pull out all my Christmas music & decorations already!  Is it too early for that?  Nah...

Speaking of Christmas, this would be a great breakfast to make for Christmas morning.

Or a Thanksgiving weekend morning, if you have company staying with you like we will!

(I'm pretty sure I will be making this to serve one morning and Easy Caramel Pecan Rolls to serve the next morning!)

If you want to make this the night before, just get it all ready and into the pan and then cover with plastic wrap or foil and place in the fridge overnight.

Pull it out in the morning to warm up a bit on the counter while you preheat the oven and then bake as usual!

Eggnog Crumble Coffee Cake
adapted from Mandy's Recipe Box

for the crumble topping:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup butter, softened
for the cake batter:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup eggnog
1 cup sour cream
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon rum extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.  Butter the bottom of a 9x13" glass baking dish.

In a medium bowl, mix together the crumble topping ingredients until well mixed.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter with a fork until well blended and smooth.  Beat in the eggnog, sour cream, eggs & rum extract until blended.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt & 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg.  Stir this mixture into the wet ingredients until just blended.

Spread the batter into the greased pan and sprinkle the crumble topping mixture in little chunks all over the top.  Bake for 35-45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean!

Serve with a few pats of butter (because you know that never hurts things!), and lots of hot coffee!!
