During the Holidays, my wife loves her Eggnog. So I figured why not make her some Eggnog Bread? Amazingly this bread tastes just like a cup of delicious Eggnog.

Many believe that Eggnog tastes like Eggs. That’s not the case. While it does contain eggs, the main ingredient is milk or cream. My wife says eggnog tastes like melted ice cream.

Alcohol Warning

Please take into consideration that some of the alcohol in this recipe may not completely burn off and the remains could be of significant concern to recovering alcoholics, parents, and others who have ethical or religious reasons for avoiding alcohol.

I will point out that the Rum Extract used for this recipe most likely contains a small amount of alcohol. Even the imitation stuff has alcohol in it. If this is an issue for you I suggest you use an alcohol-free version.

I recommend checking the bread around the 45-minute mark. If the top is getting too brown, loosely place a piece of aluminum foil over the top. The bread will not be ready at this point so tenting it will prevent the top from burning.

So now you are probably wondering what Eggnog Bread tastes like. Well I let my wife have the first piece since she drinks a lot of eggnog around the holidays. Her first comment was “it tastes just like eggnog”! So if you are an eggnog lover, this bread recipe is for you.

And if you don’t like the creamy texture of Eggnog, now you can enjoy the flavor of eggnog without the texture by simply making this Eggnog Bread.
