Eggnog Bread

This is a delicious bread recipe from Lacey Berry. My son, Cory, made several loaves of it.

Eggnog Bread

* 2 Eggs slightly beaten

* 1 C Sugar

* 1 C. Eggnog

* 1/2 C. Unsalted Butter

* 2 t. Mexican Vanilla

* 2 C. All-Pupose flour

* 1 pkg Instant Vanilla pudding

* 2 t. Baking Powder

* ½ t. Salt

* 1/2 t. nutmeg

In a bowl mix Flour, Pudding, Baking Powder, Salt and whole Nutmeg together.
Have the butter and eggs at room temperature.

In another large bowl cream room temperature Sugar and Butter together. Add Eggs one at a time. Add Eggnog, and Vanilla. Once well
mixed add slowly, dry mixture just till the dough comes together.

Grease and flour, or spray with cooking spray, 2 medium loaf pans.
Bake at 325 50-60 min.
Let cool for 10 min in pan then remove and let it cool down completely on a cooling
rack. Wrap tight and store in the refrigerator.

This bread is great to give away. You can also glaze it.

For the Glaze just add some eggnog to powder sugar till you get the consistency you like.

You can add orange zest or cranberries to this as well.
