  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Line the bottom and two short sides with parchment paper.
  2. Step 2

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Step 3

    In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, rum or rum extract (if using), vanilla, and sugar.

    Whisk the egg and yolk, one at a time, into the wet mixture.

    Whisk the eggnog into the wet mixture.
  6. Step 6

    Using a flexible spatula, gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Do not over mix.

    Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 60-70 minutes, rotating the cake at 30 minutes, and testing it for doneness at 60 minutes. The cake can be pulled from the oven when a tester inserted in the center comes out with only a moist crumb or two.

    Once cooled enough to handle, run a paring knife around the edges of the cake to release it, and invert it right-side-up on a serving platter. Make the glaze
