An Eggnog Quickie





I (HEART) Eggnog!  - I love the taste and I especially LOVE what it represents...the holidays. Thanksgiving through New Year's the yumminess of eggnog can be easily found in the grocery stores.   I also (HEART) this wonderfully quick recipe I came upon a couple of days ago.....Quick Eggnog Bread.  Not only is this bread super easy to throw together but the flavors are wonderful!  I made a double batch of this recipe - which gave me 3 mini loaves and 1 BIG loaf - and then gave away almost all of it within just a few days as early Christmas presents.  Everyone gave me RAVE reviews on the bread.  That being said I have to share the recipe for all of you that love eggnog too (or know someone that enjoys it).


Quick Eggnog Bread
(recipe adapted and found on allrecipes)

Ingredients:


2 eggs

1 cup eggnog

2 tsp rum flavored extract (or REAL rum....which is what I used)


1 cup sugar

1 tsp REAL vanilla extract

1/2 cup butter,  softened

2 1/4 cups AP flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg or cinnamon

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease bottom only of a 9x5 loaf pan or 3 mini loaf pans.

2. Beat together sugar and softened butter until light and fluffy.  Then add eggs...


.... and vanilla and rum extract.  Then add in eggnog...


3. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and spices.  Add to eggnog mixture and stir just until combined.  Pour into prepared pan/pans.

4. Bake bread 40-60 for large loaf and 35-40 minutes for mini loaves.  Loaf will be done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool bread for 10 minutes and then remove from pan.  Cool completely then wrap tightly and store in refrigerator.

Share and ENJOY!



Happy Quick Eggnog Bread Baking!
