This Quick Bread is so moist and delicious. It doesn’t take many ingredients to make this bread, yet it is so complex in flavor, texture, and taste. This may become a favorite with your loved ones and a top choice in your household. So, be sure to save this one!

One of the best things about quick bread is that you can make up a yummy batch of bread in no time! Craving a sweet bread that is full of apples? My Amish Apple Fritter Bread will be perfect! If you prefer a loaf of quick bread that is softer and doesn’t have as much texture, my Applesauce Bread definitely won’t disappoint.  If you are craving something chocolatey, then my Triple Chocolate Banana Bread will definitely satisfy you.


  • Flour- You can use all-purpose for the best results.
  • Baking powder- This will allow your bread to rise in the oven.
  • Ground nutmeg- This will add a wonderful aroma to your recipe.
  • Ground cinnamon- You can ground your own cinnamon for the best flavoring.
  • Salt- This will bring out the flavors in your recipe.
  • Butter- Use unsalted to control the salt in the recipe.
  • Southern Comfort Eggnog- This will be used for the flavoring in the bread.
  • Sugar- The best desserts have sugar in the recipe.
  • Eggs– You will need to these at room temperature.
  • Cream cheese– You will need this softened or at room temperature.
  • Powdered sugar- This is the best sugar for homemade frosting.
  • Bourbon- This will add a wonderful smokey vanilla flavor to your bread.

How to Make Eggnog Quick Bread

Set your oven to 350 degrees and use Pam to spray a 9×5 glass loaf pan.

Add all the dry ingredients into a medium bowl and whist to combine.

Add the butter, eggnog, and sugar into a large bowl and beat to combine.

One at a time, add in the eggs and combine.

Slowly add in the dry ingredients and combine.

Pour in the batter into the prepared pan.

Place the pan into the oven and bake for 45-55 minutes or until a tester placed in the center comes out clean.

Let the bread cool before taking out and putting on a rack.


Add the cream cheese, butter, eggnog, and bourbon into a medium bowl and use a hand mixer to beat until smooth and combined.

Slowly add in the powdered sugar and beat until combined. Add 3 tablespoons or 1/4 c of eggnog if it is too thick and forms a glaze-like texture.

Once it is the consistency you prefer then pour over the finished bread.

Let the glaze set for a few minutes before enjoying!

Can I Make These Muffins Instead?

It is possible to make this into muffins. However, this recipe will have to be rearranged to fit the measurements of a muffin recipe. But, this bread is the best way to make it and has the best type of texture and flavor.

Can Eggnog Bread Be Made Ahead?

You can make the batter and icing ahead for this recipe. You will have to seal in an airtight container and place in the fridge until you’re ready to bake. However, making things fresh is the best way to make any recipe.
