YAY!! It’s eggnog season! Time to take out that eggnog and get baking this delicious eggnog quick bread! This bread needs to be on your holiday baking list this year! Moist and flavorful, this bread is a winner this season!
It’s time to put the pumpkin away and bring out the eggnog. Eggnog season is upon us and its eggnog everything. I wasn’t always a huge fan of eggnog but over the years eggnog has grown on me. I always add a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top too.
When I was shopping at Costco last week, I saw that they were selling eggnog…buy the gallon no less. This inspired me to jump on the eggnog train.
I knew that I wanted to make some eggnog cookies, but was a little lost at what else to make. I was brain storming with my hubby and he told me to make some sort of quick bread. What a brilliant man I married! I’ve made numerous banana bread recipes and regular white bread recipes, but I’ve never cooked with eggnog. I crossed my fingers and hoped everything turned out well.
Oh. My. Goodness…this bread you guys is yummy! With a cup of coffee this bread will be a hit at your potluck or holiday party. Or you could be like me and make it just for yourself. Yep I didn’t share one piece. It’s so moist, flavorful and packed with delicious flavors. You need to make it asap!
This bread turned out better than I even imagined. The ingredient list is a little long, but I promise you, you will not be disappointed. This bread is packed with great eggnog flavor and is so moist with a crunchy crust. Then added with some eggnog glaze and you have one amazingly delicious bread!
