Eggnog Quickbread with an Eggnog Glaze

eggnog_quickbread

Eggnog. Do you love it or hate it?  I for one used to hate eggnog.  It was just so thick and didn’t appeal to me.  But then I made these eggnog cookies a few years ago and loved them!  They became my favorite cookie on the blog.  My son is obsessed with eggnog and looks for it every year at the grocery store.  So over the last couple of years I have learned to love eggnog.  Especially when you bake with it.  It can turn an eggnog hater into a lover like me!

This eggnog quick bread recipe though.  PERFECTION!  You will not find a better recipe for eggnog bread out there.  I guarantee it.  I was blown away by how amazing it baked and how moist and perfect it was.   My hubby who does not like eggnog at all loved this bread.  But the best part is that it is so easy to throw together.  It took me a total of maybe 5 minutes to mix it into the bowl and get it in the oven.  We had a delicious baked eggnog bread ready in no time at all!

So the question is… was this approved by my eggnog obsessed seven year old?   He came home from school and had eaten two slices before I even had known it!   He loved this bread!  And he said that the favorite part was the glaze on top.  This bread was perfect.  I know that if you love eggnog then you will love this bread!

  1. I love cooking with eggnog but not so much drinking it. It has to have a lot of alcohol in there for me to drink it. 🙂 I love your bread!

  2. Loved your egg nog cookies…they went on my neighbor plates last year…..cant wait to try this egg nog bread…..!,,,

  3. Can I leave out the rum extract

  4. Yum! I’ll definitely have to add this bread into my holiday baking this year – thanks for sharing 🙂

  5. I made this bread today. Wow, just delicious. I will be making this again when eggnog is available. Thanks for the recipe.

  6. Kathleen Smith says:

    Should the Eggnog Bread be refrigerated ?

  7. Do you think dairy-free eggnog would work just as well?

  8. Do you think it would ship well?

  9. Will butter instead of margarine make a big difference?
