"This cake gets better with age. It tastes like Christmas! Smaller loaves make excellent gifts. Use fresh eggnog, not the canned stuff."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease bottom only of a 9x5 inch loaf pan, or three 6x3 inch loaf pans.
  2. Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in sugar, melted butter, eggnog, rum extract, and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Stir into eggnog mixture, just enough to moisten dry ingredients. Pour batter into prepared pan or pans.
  3. Bake bread in large pan for 40 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Breads baked in the smaller pans require 25 to 40 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack, and cool completely. Wrap tightly, and store in the refrigerator.

This quick bread turned out VERY dry and tastless. I may retry it with more spices and a different eggnog recipe. I wish I hadn't wasted the homemade eggnog on this.

This bread tastes REALLY good, but the recipe definitely needs to be tweaked. Even after I added extra oil, as another reviewer did, I found this bread still very dry. (Maybe a little less flour...

Very easy to make and absolutely delicious. I served it with rum sauce for extra calories.........oops, I mean for an extra treat!

Yummy! It smells great too. I didn't have any rum extract and it was still good. Next time I'd use a pinch more nutmeg. I didn't put in a full cup of sugar and I used only 2 cups of flour (o...
