Eggnog Loaf with Eggnog Glaze

This quick bread comes together in a snap and feels festive without being too sweet.  I used traditional, full fat eggnog for this recipe so I can’t guarantee it’ll work with a lighter variety.  Be sure not to skimp on the nutmeg!

Eggnog Loaf with Eggnog Glaze

Recipe loosely adapted from Jenna’s Cinnamon Walnut Bread.

Makes: 1 loaf; Prep Time: 10 minutes; Cook Time: 45 – 50 minutes

  • 2 cups plus 1/2 tsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.  In a small bowl, whisk egg.  In another small bowl, toss butterscotch chips with 1/2 tsp flour to coat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix 2 cups flour, baking soda, nutmeg, salt, and sugar.
  3. Stir in egg and eggnog, taking care not to overmix.  Fold floured butterscotch chips into dough.
  4. Pour dough into a greased loaf pan and bake for 45 – 50 minutes, until top is browned and an inserted knife comes out clean.
  5. Allow to cool completely before cutting.  Drizzle glaze over slices as desired.

For eggnog glaze

Whisk together 2/3 cup powdered sugar and 2 Tbsp eggnog.  Store glaze in a covered container in the fridge until ready to serve.
