from Baking for All Occasions by Flo Braker



  • 1/2 cup (65 g) dried currants (or raisins)
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum (or water)
  • 3 cups (390 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups (400 g) sugar
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 3/4 cup (150 g) sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum
  • 2 tablespoons water


Combine the currants and rum in a small bowl. Macerate for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 12-cup bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray with flour.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg together. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter until smooth and creamy. With the mixer on medium speed, add the sugar in a steady stream and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes (stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary). Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Alternately add the flour mixture (in 4 additions) and the eggnog (in 3 additions), beginning and ending with the dry ingredients, and beating just until each addition is incorporated. Mix in the vanilla.

Transfer the batter to the prepeared pan. Bake for 55-65 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly pressed, and a thin knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the cake cool for 10 minutes while you make the glaze.

To make the glaze: Use a rubber spatula to stir all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Turn the cake out onto a wire rack, and place a sheet of waxed paper underneath to catch the dripping glaze. Use a pastry brush to coat the top and sides of the warm bundt. Let the cake cool completely before serving.
