This Eggnog Bread is moist, delicious and full of that classic flavor!
Is it too late to put this recipe out there?
Do you still have Eggnog in your fridge? Maybe just a little?
Way in the back….
Behind the sour cream??
You might wanna check the date first… I made this way back in December to give as gifts to my neighbors.
If you like Eggnog, you’ll love this loaf of bread. If you don’t like Eggnog, you’ll still love this loaf of bread. It’s super moist with just a hint of that classic Eggnog flavor. The cinnamon and all spice really stand out and compliment the Eggnog perfectly. I had some dipping chocolate left over from some candies I made and drizzled it over the top of the bread- PERFECT!
This recipe almost got lost in the abyss of my paperwork/mail/kids old homework pile and totally forgotten about. Good thing one of my other New Year’s Resolutions is to actually “file” my papers instead of just pile them up on my dresser. Lucky for you! So if you have any more Eggnog left, I urge you to make this bread! It’s divine.
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup eggnog
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp all spice
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar in a medium/large bowl until smooth. Add in eggs one at a time. Stir in eggnog and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and allspice. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients 1/2 cup at a time, until it’s all combined.
- Spray 4- 5?x3? mini loaf pans or two larger loaf pans with non stick cooking spray. I prefer the Pam for Baking (with flour).
- Divide batter evenly among pans and bake for 30-40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when tested from the center. Let cool on wire rack before removing from pan.
- If desired, you can drizzle the tops with melted chocolate for a little added sweetness.
I had about a quart of leftover Hood eggnog in my fridge so I thought I’d give your Eggnog Bread a try so I could use that up..
I made 3 regular size loaves, 4 mini loaves, 18 muffins and 24 mini muffins. After the mini loaves had cooled off enough to take out of the pan and slice, my husband and I tried a piece. DRY. I thought maybe it needs a little butter. Still DRY, just w butter. The only difference I made to the recipe was to add some chocolate chips and walnuts to the batter. Thank heavens I did because that’s the only thing that makes them worth eating.
I watched the cooking process and tested the breads to make sure they were completely cooked, but not over cooked, so it wasn’t that.
What could have happened?
I’m used to making “skinny” bread recipes w banana, pumpkin, applesauce, yogurt and such that are always super moist and flavorful.
What are your thoughts on this?
Hello there! I was wondering did anyone make them and if so how did they turn out!
Making this right now, thinking of putting some dark rum in.
THE EGGNOG BREAD SOUNDS GREAT THINK I’M GOING TO TRY IT FOR A CHRISTMAS PARTY

Mmmmm – these are adorable and I’m sure we’ll love them. Love the chocolate drizzle idea too.
