Eggnog cake (another old family recipe for Easter!)

What goes better with Easter than a delicious eggnog cake? At the moment I’m on a tear when it comes to old family recipes. I admit: at home the chocolate chips in the cake were smaller, but I also like this version with extra large Callebault chocolate callets in almond dough. Yummy! If you prefer something more traditional, simply grab your favorite chocolate and grate it as small as you like with a knife. A poem! Then the whole floor looks more

chocolatey. The cream makes it nice and chlorinated and the eggnog adds a special twist! Simply delicious! Be sure to test it! Not only grandma will enjoy this, but the whole family! Promised! And if you have children, simply leave out the eggnog at one corner and just spread it generously with delicious cream…
