I cannot believe how well we’re doing on our Christmas prep. If all goes well, we are going to be finished and ready with at least two weeks to spare! Up today is a recipe for Eggnog Bread with Sugar Rum Glaze. If you give small gifts to neighbors or co-workers, this is the perfect thing. It will also pair nicely with the homemade vanilla extract I shared several weeks ago. No worries if you didn’t bother with the vanilla. You can still give this bread on its own because it is, quite simply, delish. Moist and sweet, it’s more of a dessert than a quick bread. I’m not really much of a glaze or frosting person…but this sugar rum glaze is amazing. I could have licked the bowl.
The batter mixes up quickly and easily. It’s on the thick side so you have to spoon it into your bread pans. You can see little pieces of butter in the batter…that’s because the cold eggnog keeps the butter from completely dissolving. This bread is sweet so if you skip the glaze, it will still be good. I highly recommend at least trying the glaze. It adds a pretty finishing touch and like I said before, tastes amazing.

Last year they were everywhere. Hopefully I will find some soon, but if I don’t, we’ll manage just fine.
