Egg Nog Coffee Cake

On Thanksgiving morning, while my mother in law and I were starting to cook, while having our coffee, I wanted to have something nice for breakfast.  However, with all of the work that goes into Thanksgiving, I wanted something easy.  This recipe fit the bill.  It was festive (Hello Egg Nog!), simple, delicious, and went great with a cup of coffee.  I assembled it the night before, and took it right out of the refrigerator and put it into the oven.

My only change was that I used a bit more Egg Nog for the drizzle.  I get my Egg Nog from Oberweis, and it’s really REALLY thick and decadent!

I hope all of you and your families had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year!
