Chocolate Cake w/ Cream Cheese Egg Nog Frosting

I took my One Bowl Chocolate Cake recipe and tweaked it a bit. Instead of milk I used light Egg Nog and added about a 1/2 a teaspoon of nutmeg to the batter. The batter smelled delicious and I added it to a well greased tube pan. It baked for about 45 minutes.

For the frosting, I used a block of fat free cream cheese, a cup of icing sugar, and a few teaspoons of Egg Nog. I spooned it all over the cake once it had cooled then added some snowflake sprinkles and some nutmeg. I love this chocolate cake recipe because it gives a nice fudgy moist cake.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake Recipe


  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two nine inch round pans.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix for 2 minutes on medium speed of mixer. Stir in the boiling water last. Batter will be thin. Pour evenly into the prepared pans.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cake tests done with a toothpick. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
