The Best Cinnamon Spiced Eggnog Bread is a Christmas favorite! It's perfect for dessert or breakfast.
I start scouting the stores in October looking for Eggnog. I never in a million years thought that I would like it growing up, and truth be told I didn't try it until after I was married, 17 years ago.
Now, I can't get enough of it during the holidays, and I'm always finding more ways to incorporate it throughout my day, besides just in a glass.
Eggnog helps this bread stay super moist, along with the eggs and butter. However, it's the cinnamon and nutmeg that really make this The Best Cinnamon Spiced Eggnog Bread.
The glaze helps set it a part from others, because I didn't use rum. So many eggnog breads call for a rum glaze, but since we don't really keep alcohol in the house, I decided to make this one with stuff we had on hand.
Plus not everyone keeps rum in their house, and I wanted y'all to be able to make this as soon as you bought eggnog!
How did eggnog become a Christmas drink?
During the 18th century there was plenty of rum and eggs around, which made it easy to make eggnog. The funny thing is back then eggnog was enjoyed warm! Do you drink warm eggnog?
