German Eggnog Bundt Cake is one of my favorite cakes to bake for Easter. It is easy, extreamely tasty and very presentable on the Easter table. 

You likely have most of its ingredients already in the kitchen: powdered sugar, all-purpose flour, starch, baking powder and vegetable oil. I hope that the key ingredient, eggnog, is also not that hard to find there where you live. 

In our family, bundt cake and Easter are inseparable. Although I grew up eating the plain variation of the bundt cake, which has a lemon or vanilla flavour, a few years ago, I discovered this recipe. The whole family fell in love with it so much that from that time on, we could not imagine Easter without it.
