I can not say enough good things about this bread!!...However, I did change some things about this recipe (because so many people complained that it was dry). I added an extra 1/2 c eggnog, decreased the flour to 2 cups, added 1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix to the batter, and used 1/4 c butter + 1/4 c oil instead of the whole 1/2 c butter. I creamed the butter, sugar and oil until they were very fluffy before I added the rest of the ingredients. Also, I did not have any rum extract, so I just used 2-3 tbs of the real stuff instead ;) The finished product turned out to be very moist and sooooo yummy! I made a delicious eggnog glaze to go on top, which realllllly adds to this bread. Glaze: 1c confectioners' sugar, then mix in eggnog and rum until you reach your desired consistency and taste (add a healthy amount of rum, you will be happy that you did). The glaze and this bread together were amazing! Next time I might try a flavored eggnog and see how it turns out :~)
