AIMEE'S EGG NOG SPICE CAKE TRIFLE

Make a spice cake, even using a boxed mix, but doctor it by making it with an extra egg, and use egg nog in place of water. Can use yellow or white cake mix or even homemade; just add a teaspoon of cinnamon and half a teaspoon of nutmeg. 

AIMEE'S EGG NOG WHIPPED CREAM

1 cup heavy whipped cream 

1/3 egg nog 

3 Tablespoons powdered sugar

Beat ingredients together in a chilled bowl. 

AIMEE'S EGG NOG PUDDING

3/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

2 whole eggs

4 egg yolks

2 cups whole milk

1 cup egg nog

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

freshly grated nutmeg (about 1/2 teaspoon)

Stir together sugar, flour, eggs, milk and egg nog in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, whisking constantly for about 10 minutes.  The consistency should be thick, like pudding.  It will begin to bubble (but do not boil).  Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and nutmeg. Chill for at least four hours.
