Two Noggin’s Beats One…

My mother and I’s version of bread is what most people would call cake. :) As that point became clear when people made my Almond Joy Bread…I was told bread was used loosely. Live a little people. :P

Since we are always talking about them and how one of these years my mom is going to write down some of the recipes for me and never does I decided that I would suggest strongly that we bake while I was visiting. So we baked three things I have wanted to bake and more importantly get the recipe for!

I love this bread. The glaze gets hard (not like outside of chewy bread break your teeth kind of hard) and kind of seals the moisture in. We went mini with the loaves as we were dividing them up…as I needed to take at least one home to take pictures of. And for some reason my mother was insisting on keeping two herself. Then I tasted them and understood why she was hoarding.

And p.s. because someone will ask…no I don’t know how it will turn out if you use real rum. The recipe was submitted by a man of the cloth so I don’t think he was hitting up the rum. :)

Yes my mom and I look alike…I’m okay with that. :)

  1. This looks so moist and flavorful! And I love that you make it as small loaves, which makes for amazing edible holiday gifts. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  2. Making this for the hubs

  3. Yum. I’ll take fourteen please. I love the idea of egg nog…love, love!

  4. Looks great. Quick bread is sweet like cake.

  5. Oh yum, yum!! I like the taste of egg nog… well at least I think I do. I know I like Dryer’s egg nog ice cream. That stuff is delicious! Anyways, this egg nog bread looks pretty dang good too. :P

  6. This looks delicious! Love the detailed pics. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Got this in the oven right now. Thanks so much for this recipe!

  8. Love it! The bread looks delish but baking with mama that is what makes it real and cherished. Looking forward to giving this a go with my boys. They adore eggnog and bread. Total win!

  9. Just added eggnog to my shopping list – can’t wait to make this! And I’m going to go crazy and use real rum!

  10. The picture alone sold me…one loaf would definitely not be enough!

  11. I was in as soon as I saw “Eggnog”. Can’t get enough of the stuff!

  12. I made this a few days ago with my kiddos and WOW!! It came together quickly and tasted great!! Even my 13 yr old, who is super picky with her “breads” could not get enough of it. I used Silk eggnog, since that was what I had on hand, and raw sugar. The bread was so moist and flavorful. I can see me making this in the future quit a few times :)

    Thanks for sharing.

  13. I made these mini loaves for holiday gifts (and some to have at home) Wow they are wonderful. I am egg nog obsessed and this is my favourite recipe I have come across!

    Thank you!! :)

    This bread is ridiculous (in the best possible way)! Gave as holiday gifts to approx. 40 neighbors and friends. Nearly half of them went out of their way to send an e-mail, make a phone call, or simply yell down the street to me that this bread was “Crazy Good”, “Best quick bread ever” and “Holy Crap that bread was good”! I do recommend using a thinner (Meadow Gold) eggnog vs. the really thick, wanna’ pour it in a glass and drink it right now eggnog (Royal Crest). Great result!

  15. Love this recipe! It was a hit with the family and I’ve made up mini loaves for friends and family for christmas. The only thing I did different was use a powdered sugar glaze recipe of 1 cup powdered sugar, 1-2 tablespoons eggnog, and 1 teaspoon rum extract. I liked the look of having a glaze that you could see. Thanks again!
