"Martha" side of me ~ Eggnog Cake

Just realized that I didn't post this several weeks ago--it's been in the draft folder!

Well, with the success of the 'eggnog French toast' under my culinary belt, I decided to try an 'eggnog cake' recipe the day after Christmas--another 'hit'!! This truly is becoming scary--I must be in some sort of time-space continum or time warp that allows my cooking to be sucessful.
