Eggnog Bread made with seasonal egg and milk beverage, and then topped with a flavorful glaze and sprinkled with nutmeg! This bread makes a delicious holiday gift or morning treat!
I’ve been putting my Kitchenaid mixer through quite a workout these past few days so that we’ll have plenty of cookies to munch on and enjoy during our Christmas break!
We also have a neighborhood holiday gathering that we go to every year and I’m in charge of bringing a dessert so I want to make sure to have plenty to pack up!
I’m on a baking roll! So I might as well add eggnog bread to the list, right?!
Eggnog quick bread
Are you an eggnog fan? We buy it every year, but I don’t drink milk at all (just preference), so it’s not that appealing to me. I do like the flavor and I’ll have a sip or two, but that’s about it.
Alan is the one that enjoys it the most or maybe it’s the brandy that he adds that he likes best! We usually end up with a lot leftover, so instead of tossing it out adding it to baked goods sounds like better plan to me!
This recipe doesn’t call for any proofing time. Mix the ingredients, bake, cool and add the glaze.
An eggnog loaf makes a great holiday gift idea!
This eggnog bread baked up nice and tender, flavorful, and it’s super easy to make!
Add this recipe to your holiday dessert try or spread the sweetness and give a mini loaf as a gift!
I made one large loaf, but you can also divide the batter and bake mini loafs!
