1 cup commercial eggnog
3 eggs
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Blend a small amount into egg yolk and return to pan; mix well. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in butter and vanilla. Cool 15 minutes. Fold in whipped cream. Store in fridge and serve with cake.
