I’ve had a love affair with eggnog since I was little. When I was around 7 years old my mom, who was an elementary school librarian, brought home a cookbook with simple recipes that kids could make on their own. One of the recipes was a no-cook eggnog that my brothers and I must have made 1,000 times; it was so yummy.
I’ve managed to pass my eggnog obsession on to my girls. Every time they see eggnog in the store they beg me to buy it. With the holidays approaching eggnog is a staple in our house. So when I ran across my friend Jenni Field’s (Pastry Chef Online) recipe for Eggnog Cream Cheese Frosting I knew I needed to find something to spread it on!
I was contemplating pound cake when I thought, wouldn’t it be great to have eggnog flavored bread!?! So I tweaked a recipe or two and came up with this one. It’s the ideal amount of eggnog-y but not overly sweet. And Jenni’s frosting is the perfect complement to the bread. (The bread goes really well with my spicy sipping chocolate!)
When I made the bread to photograph for this post, my girls were circling it all afternoon. Every 5 minutes they were asking me “Can I have a piece yet?” They couldn’t wait to get their hands on it!
I whipped up this scrumptious eggnog bread using my amazing Ankarsrum Original Stand Mixer. The double beaters made easy work of whipping all the ingredients perfectly, and the cream cheese frosting was blended exceptionally.
Here is the recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
