Prep Time:20 mins
Cook Time:1 hr
Total Time:1 hr 20 mins


  • 4 room temperature eggs
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 stick 1/2 cup melted salted butter (not hot; just melted)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups lukewarm eggnog microwaved for 30-45 seconds and stirred


  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Line an 8x8" baking dish with parchment paper (or use a silicone baking dish and give it a light spray with cooking spray).
  • Separate egg whites and yolks into two separate bowls. Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until whites form still peaks. Set whites aside.
  • Mix together yolks, sugar, butter, cinnamon, and vanilla. Slowly mix in flour until there are no lumps. Slowly add eggnog (this will make batter thin).
  • Gently fold in the egg whites. Whites do not have to be completely mixed in; you might see some lumps of egg white.
  • Bake for 60 minutes at 325 degrees, until top turns brown and cake is set. Allow to cool for 30 minutes before dusting with powdered sugar, cutting with a sharp knife, and serving warm.
