I am lovin' this coffee cake, super moist and totally filled the house with the smell of eggnog. The best part IT TASTES LIKE EGGNOG!


Once this coffee cake is made, it's stored in the fridge until you're ready to bake it the next day.

Can't wait until the next morning to bake this yummy cake? You don't have to. Just reduce bake time to 30 to 35 minutes if baking immediately.

I am not sure if it is the lingering back pain or I am just a grouch this morning but everything is annoying me. K started the morning out (and let me just state for the facts mornings around here start 5am) playing with Legos. Ok, cool, but then he lets Legos fall on the floor, NOT cool because then A picks them up and puts them into his mouth. I said to K, hey you are letting Legos fall on the floor, please pick them up...nothing. I swear these boys have already perfected the tune-mom-out skill. Then said baby picks up Lego and inserts into mouth while toddling into the living room. Uh, K the baby just picked up the Legos and they are in his mouth, would you PLEASE PICK THEM UP NOW! is patient love is kind. This would be my new mantra, Corinthians-Love is patient, love is kind. A sort of groosefrabba for mom's. I figure one day I will either counted-cross stitch the passage out or some kind of sampler. Right now, the oldest is in the bathroom, and the younger two feel the need to hang around the door and bang on the door, scream, slide their hands underneath the door you know general peskiness. GET AWAY FROM THE DOOR!!! Love is patient love is kind, love is patient love is kind. Breath in breath out...Ok where is the bourbon. Just kiddin' I am not much of a drinker these days.
