After making 6 to 8 quarts of eggnog this year, I decided to use some of it up making this bread. You don’t need to make your own eggnog for this recipe, just buy some ready made. It was so good I think I made 6 batches to give to my friends and family. Try it, you’ll love it.
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup eggnog
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray one 9 x 5-inch loaf pan, or three 3 x 5-inch loaf pans with no-stick cooking spray.
Mix butter and sugar until well blended. Add eggs and mix. Add eggnog and vanilla extract and mix.
Add remaining ingredients and mix until just moistened. You may have lumps. Pour into your prepared pans.
Bake large loaf for 50 to 60 minutes, smaller loaves for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes, and remove from pan. Cool completely, wrap tightly in plastic wrap or foil, and store in refrigerator.
