Amazing Mouth-Watering Eggnog Sheet Cake

If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE – LOVE – LOVE everything and all things about Christmas! The treats, the music, the smells and, well, everything about the spirit of the season. Eggnog is just the beginning of the seasonal fun around here. I love THIS recipe for Homemade Non-Alcoholic Eggnog and last year? Came up with this Eggnog Recipe for Sweet Skillet Breakfast Rolls. Add my Eggnog cookies, Eggnog french toast… see. I have a small problem with my eggnog addiction, LOL!

Now, what is the difference between regular cake and sheet cake?

The primary difference between sheet cake and regular cake is the size of the cake pan. Sheet cake is made in a sheet cake pan which is a shallow, large pan. Regular cake is usually made in a 9×13 baking dish or, for a double layer cake, it’s made in two 8-9” round pans. They have become so popular because it is easy to customize one side or the other so you have a variety of cake to offer, after all is said and done.

That being said, this sheet cake recipe of mine ALSO works in a 9 x 13 pan. That is how I made it today. If you want to make it as a sheet cake, you need to DOUBLE THIS RECIPE, pour the batter into a sheet pan before you bake it. and bake for about 40-45 minutes.

Eggnog Sheet Cake Recipe

You will need:

  • 3 C flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 C unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • 2 C sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ C Southern Comfort Eggnog


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×13 baking dish with Pam baking spray. Using a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients until combined. Using a large bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggnog until combined. Beat in the eggs one at a time until combined. Gradually beat in the dry ingredients until combined. Scoop the batter into the baking dish and place into the oven and bake
for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Eggnog cream cheese glaze

If you are making a sheet cake, you need to double this recipes for the eggnog cream cheese glaze also as you will be frosting twice the surface.

  • 1 – 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ C unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • ¼ C Southern Comfort eggnog, plus more if needed
  • 2 C powdered sugar
  • White Chocolate Shavings


Using a large bowl and hand mixer, beat the cream cheese, butter, and
eggnog until combined and smooth. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar until combined. If the glaze starts to become thick, beat in about 3 tbsp – ¼ C of eggnog. You’ll want the frosting to almost be a glaze-like texture. Pour the frosting over the warm cake and allow it to cool completely before sprinkling on the white chocolate shavings.
