Eggnog Quick Bread with Rum Glaze

4 Comments

This is a great recipe for the holidays.  Don’t skip the glaze because it really adds to the bread and it would be boring without it.  I ran out of spiced rum (oh the horror!) so I used rum flavoring and it worked great. The recipes makes two loaves ~ one to keep and one to give away!

Eggnog Quick Bread with Rum Glaze

3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 3/4 cups sugar
4 eggs, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup eggnog, room temperature

Glaze:
1 cup sifted confectioner’s sugar
2 – 3 tbsps eggnog
1 tbsp spiced rum
1/8 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 325º.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and the salt in a medium bowl.

Cream the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add eggs, one at a time beating well after each. Add the vanilla and mix well. Add the flour mixture alternately with the eggnog and beat until smooth.

Spray two 8×4 loaf pans with cooking spray. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake for 55 – 60 minutes or until a pick inserted in teh middle comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes then remove bread from pans and cool completely.

For the glaze, combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Pour over cooled bread.

Makes 2 loaves.

Happy Cooking!

  1. I made this with Lactaid eggnog that was given to me and I didn’t want to waste it. And I agree…..pound cake!!! Worthy of the great Stock’s Bakery in Philly, famous for its pound cake. My boyfriend doesn’t like eggnog and yet already told me he’s taking over both loaves and I can make something else for myself. Thank you for the recipe!

  2. I made this bread to add to my cookie trays for the neighbors. It tastes almost like a pound cake to me. Love, Love this receipe!
