By popular request I am posting the Eggnog Bread recipe. I cannot take credit for this bread. I saw it highlighted by Michelle @ Someday Crafts who found the idea from Maggie @ Smashed Peas and Carrots . I am simply reposting the recipe I found from Maggie. I think the eggnog bread tastes even more fantastic cinnamon cream cheese so I’ll include the recipe for that as well 🙂
1 cup eggnog
2 teaspoons rum flavored extract
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease one large loaf pan or 3 mini loaf pans. Mix together the first 6 ingredients until they are blended well. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Add dry ingredients to the eggnog mixture and mix until just moistened. Pour into prepared pan(s). Bake large pan for 40-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Smaller loaf pans can bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes, remove from pan, and then let cool completely on a baking rack. Wrap tightly and store in the refrigerator for easy cutting.
Cinnamon Cream Cheese
1 block of cream cheese
1 1/2 t cinnamon
3T powdered sugar
Mix all ingredients together well with hand mixer. Cover and chill until needed. Delicious when spread on the eggnog bread!

I made this bread today and it is AMAZING! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I am going to post about it on my blog and link back to yours if you want to stop over. Happy Holidays!
This looks like a good recipe. Mine has pecans and candied cherries in it, but no rum. I think I'll add some rum this year! Yum!!
I am so glad you like the eggnog bread recipe!!! And thanks for the shout out on your blog…which I love by the way 🙂 I have been meaning to say thanks for stopping by my blog but have been a little slow in the comment reply department these days!
Anyhoo, much love to you this holiday season…oh and you can substitute real rum for the extract (asked by one of your readers in your comments above) but I never have it on hand so I always use extract!!
