Eggnog Loaf Recipe

Blogmas Day 9

I posted this recipe 2 years ago, in 2013, but I love it so much that I wanted to share it with you all again! I have a holiday potluck at work today so I decided to use this recipe and make mini muffins because I had never done that before with this recipe. I took this full loaf to my holiday potluck last year and most of it didn't get eaten and I think it was because no one wanted to take the time to cut a slice and they probably didn't want a full slice, either, after eating a heavy lunch.

I think the mini muffin version of this recipe will be great for events like I'm having today but the full loaf itself is really gorgeous and is a really eye-catching dessert to have on the table. I particularly love making a full loaf because it's so versatile to have in the house for breakfast, dessert, snacks, etc.

Don't be deterred from this recipe if you don't like eggnog, because I'm not a fan of it, but I love this recipe!
Eggnog Loaf Christmas Recipe

1 and 1/2 cups of regular eggnog (not low fat)
2 eggs
2 tsp Spiced Rum
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter @ room temperature (I prefer margarine for this recipe)
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 (3.4 ounces of powdered) package of instant French vanilla pudding mix
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
*Note: You can substitute the Spiced Rum for Orange Juice 

Preheat oven to 350. Spray your loaf, muffin etc. pan with non stick spray.

1. In your mixer using the paddle – mix together the eggs, eggnog, rum, sugar, vanilla and butter. The butter will remain clumpy but that is just fine. 

2. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, pudding mix, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.

3. Add the dry mixture to the wet and blend until incorporated. Avoid over mixing. Again, the butter will remain clumpy and this is to be expected. The butter will melt when cooking.  The dough will be thicker – be aware.  

4. Pour into your prepared choice of pan(s).

5. Bake your mini loaves or mini muffins for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. A regular loaf pan will take about 45-55 minutes. Mine always take closer to the hour mark, at least.

6. I suggest using a toothpick or preferably a skewer to poke holes in your loaf so the glaze will sink inside and it'll be nice and moist when you cut into it!

Glaze Ingredients
2  tablespoons of milk
1/2 tablespoon of eggnog
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (I used a little less than this because I wanted the glaze to stay white)

Once you've whisked it all together, it should be thick and a creamy white. I also like to add festive sprinkles to mine to add a little color!
