Moist, Soft Eggnog Bread Recipe
The bread alone is so delicious but when you add the vanilla rum glaze on top it’s even better. It’s just enough eggnog flavor to enjoy but isn’t overwhelming at all. You can make this as one big loaf or smaller mini-loaves. I like making minis and sharing with friends and family, packaged up with a red ribbon.
What You Will Need
Here is the list of what you’ll need to make this bread recipe. Most of the items are basic pantry staples you’ve probably got. Below in the recipe box you’ll find the full recipe amounts and instructions.
- Eggs: Large size.
- Eggnog: Use whichever is your favorite, just make sure you use a full fat version.
- Rum: We used Captain Morgan.
- Sugar: Granulated, white sugar.
- Vanilla: Pure vanilla if you’ve got it (much better than imitation!)
- Butter: For baking we prefer real butter, not vegetable oil spread.
- Flour: All-purpose.
- Vanilla pudding mix: This adds great flavor to the bread.
- Baking powder and Salt: Bread staples!
- Nutmeg and Cinnamon: These two spices go so perfect with the eggnog and rum.
Yes, there is Spiced Rum in this recipe, but it is only two teaspoons. If you are sharing this with the kids and would like to omit this part that’s totally fine. It just adds a bit of spiced flavor.
How To Make Eggnog Bread with Rum Glaze
Making this bread is actually pretty easy to do! Mix wet and dry ingredients separately, combine, then bake. I think once you see how simple it is, you’ll be making it all fall and witner.
- Mix the batter. Start by mixing together the wet ingredients; eggs, rum, eggnog, vanilla and the sugar. In a different bowl, stir the dry ingredients; flour, salt, baking powder, spices and pudding. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix well.
- Bake the bread. Pour the batter into a sprayed baking dish and cook for about 45 minutes or until it’s full baked. Let it cool before removing it from the pan.
- Make the glaze. Simply whisk together the ingredients and pour it over the bread while it’s still a little warm.
How To Store Your Eggnog Bread
Keep this stored right at room temperature in an airtight container for up to two or three days. You can simply cover it with plastic wrap or set it in a covered cake stand.
