Kid-friendly microwave eggnog

Kid-friendly microwave eggnog



  • 3 tbs caster sugar
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup full cream milk
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon (to sprinkle)
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg (to sprinkle)


Place eggs, caster sugar and vanilla into a medium bowl.

Whisk together well.

Add the milk and cream and whisk together until completely combined.

Pour the eggnog into two microwave-safe mugs.

Heat in 30 second bursts for 4-6 minutes (times will vary slightly according to your microwave). At the end of each 30 second burst, whisk the eggnog with a fork. The eggnog is ready when it’s hot – but do not allow it to boil.

Serve warm or chilled with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg.

Serving Suggestions


  • If you divide the eggnog into 4 small serves simply reduce the cooking time to 2-3 minutes.
  • Do not allow the eggnog to boil in the microwave – heat it in 30 second bursts, whisking with a fork each time.
  • To make this an adults-only eggnog, simply mix through brandy, rum or bourbon after it has cooled slightly.
  • Eggnog makes a lovely Christmas Eve drink – or why not leave a glass out for Santa!
