Homemade Cooked Eggnog

We use our homemade eggnog for the log cake...but it sure is delicious on it's own.

This is a one serving recipe, you can multiple the recipe to make it for the whole family :)

Infographic Recipe will be updated soon 

Christmas Eggnog
Yields 1 serving

240ml (1 cup) Milk
1 Large egg
10g (1 tbsp) Granulated sugar
1g (1/4 tsp) Vanilla extract
Pinch of ground nutmeg
15ml (0.5 oz) Brandy
15ml (0.5 oz) Light rum

1. In a saucepan, slowly heat milk to small bubbles form, do not let it boil
2. In a mixing bowl, whisk egg, sugar and nutmeg until combine
3. Slowly stream in the hot milk to temper the egg mixture
4. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and heat it on low
5. Stir constantly to avoid scrambling the eggs
6. Do not let the mixture boil
7. Cook until mixture has thicken, coat the back of a spoon/ 70°C (160°F) around 15 minutes
8. Turn off the heat and stir in vanilla extract
9. Transfer eggnog into a bowl, cover it and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, several hours or overnight
10. Transfer eggnog into a blender and add both alcohol
11. Blend until smoothly combine and aerated, volume should look doubled in size
12. If you are using a hand blender, slightly lift the blender to beat in more air

I. This is a cooked eggnog, so it contains no raw eggs
II. If you don’t like rum/brandy you can choose your favourite liqueurs
III. Chill the liquors too if you like your nog extra cold
IV. A pinch of nutmeg is more than enough, nutmeg has a strong flavour
V. This recipe makes enough for the mousse for the “Yule log” recipe + more to drink
