The holidays are here, and so are the holiday parties! From dessert, parties to holiday coffee hours after church, or informal brunch get-togethers, there are so many opportunities to bake a special holiday treat to share with friends and family. Today I am sharing this Overnight Holiday Streusel Eggnog Coffee Cake that will Make Your Brunch a Breeze. Seriously, you can prepare the cake the night before you want to bake it, so you bring a fresh warm cake to all those holiday parties.
You know I love baking with eggnog this time of the year! I made this Overnight Holiday Streusel Eggnog Coffee Cake last year for my family’s Christmas morning brunch, and it was so good I am making it again this year. I loved that I could prepare the cake the night before, and pop it in the oven the morning of our brunch. This cake always turns out moist and flavorful and is a hit wherever it goes.

- Sprinkle Streusel Topping over batter.
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Uncover pan; bake 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

The original recipe recommends placing the streusel on the cake before you refrigerate it. I have found this drastically affects the texture of the streusel. For best results store the streusel and cake separately until you are ready to bake.
If you are frequently bringing dishes to pass for parties also, you probably have developed a decent appreciation for disposable bakeware. I am convinced it is easier for everyone involved to use disposable dishes. But in the past transporting baked goodies in disposable pans wasn’t always fun. More often than not I would have to use a cookie sheet to support my disposable pan. Which wasn’t super convenient. So I was pretty excited to see Reynolds Kitchens offers a wide variety of bakeware that help make your holiday baking experience better and easier. I am loving the new disposable bakeware with a carrier! It’s the perfect carrying case for your winter treats. I have used these pans and carriers twice now, and the handles offer stable support and easy carrying.
And it is the holidays, so why not add a festive little touch? I like to add a little Happy Holiday Gift Tag to the lid of the pan, go ahead and print it out on some cardstock, it is super handy to have around.
