*I have recently updated the photographs for this recipe, please enjoy!
I am always super excited for December to roll in because when I go grocery shopping I get to find Eggnog in the stores and then precisely fill my cart up with it! I used to hate eggnog when I was a kid but like so many people say, your tastes change as you get older I guess! Now, I just love it and every December you can find me in my kitchen making more than a few loaves of this amazing Eggnog Bread!
I like to make this Eggnog Bread in large loaves for my family and then lots of mini loaves to give out at my annual cookie exchange. It is so nice toasted with some butter. Mmmm…the perfect way to start your morning off right (or end your day…maybe this is why the loaves in our house only last a day!)
You have to try this recipe, I am sure you’ll fall in love with it too. Even my friends who aren’t so keen on eggnog can’t wait for me to make this every winter.
