Eggnog Bread (Holiday Blog Hop)

Do you like eggnog? If the answer is yes, then I have the bread for you! If the answer is no, what the *#%& is wrong with you!?! I am going to change your mind with this bread!

All kidding aside, this Eggnog bread tastes like the holidays. Every bite is like a delicious sip of it’s creamy, rum-spiked drink counterpart.

Eggnog Bread

2 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 cups eggnog

3 Tbsp rum

1 cup white sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup oil

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 small box vanilla instant pudding

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar mixed with enough eggnog & rum to reach desired consistency

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

2. Blend together the eggs, eggnog, rum, sugar, vanilla, butter and oil.

3. Sift together the flour, vanilla instant pudding, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Add to eggnog mixture and stir just enough to moisten; pour into prepared pan.

4. Bake bread in pan for about 60 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes, and remove from pan. Cool completely, glaze if desired and store in the refrigerator.

  1. So as a child I didn't like eggnog. But as a child I was also a very picky eater. However I have yet to retry it since. Maybe trying it in your bread first is the way to ease into it!

  4. Lol seriously - what is UP with people not liking eggnog?! It's a creamy sweet drink with alcohol in it!! Lol this bread does look pretty fabulous. A big slice with a dollop of whipped cream and coffee = holiday breakfast to me! Or dessert...but I prefer breakfast :)

  6. Okay, so I'm usually a big eggnog doubter.

    Buuuuut this might be okay. Only because you've got rum in it. And that makes everything better, right? I mean...did I say that? ;)
