HOW TO MAKE THIS EGGNOG BREAD RECIPE

STEP TWO: In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment add eggs, eggnog, rum extract, vanilla extract, and butter. Turn the mixer on medium and mix together for about 2 minutes.

STEP SEVEN: Once the bread is done cooking, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for 20 minutes in the bread pan.

STEP EIGHT: After 20 minutes, gently remove the bread from the pan and place it on a serving platter. Pour the glaze over the top of the bread and serve! 

STORAGE 

IN THE FRIDGE: After letting your bread cool completely, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or tin foil and store in the fridge for 4 to 5 days. 

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze this bread for up to 3 months. If freezing, it’s best to do so before putting the glaze on top. You can freeze the glaze as well. When you are ready to enjoy, let both thaw completely, then warm the glaze before pouring it over the top of the bread.

    This sounds interesting, my eggnog loving husband would probably love it! I have a question though.. what is the equivalent measurement for 3/4 ounce pudding mix? TIA

  2. A says

    We have celiac & 2 dairy allergies in the house. I have alternatives for the eggnog & butter but what would be the best alternative for the pudding ?

    • Layne Kangas says

      Oh goodness, I’m not sure. I haven’t tried to make it another way. There may be an alternative mix that a health food store might carry that you could try using. I haven’t tried that though, so I am not sure what would be the best option for a special diet.

  3. Sarah says

    Do I have to refrigerate it if I’m serving it tomorrow? And when should I put the glaze on if I’m going to serve it tomorrow?

  4. Carla says

    5 stars
    This bread is fabulous, but both times I have made it the centers aren’t baked. I leave it in longer and test with a toothpick. Everything seems good until I flip it out of the pan, what am I doing wrong?
