Cinnamon Raisin Egg Nog Bake & An Egg Nog Challenge!

With the Christmas holidays fast approaching I made this Egg Nog Bake to make sure it would be a hit on Christmas morning.  I wanted something that would be easy enough to make the night before and pop in the oven while the kids were looking through their stockings.  I’ve had plain old French toast bake before but I wanted to make it more festive so I went in search of a recipe with egg nog.  That’s when I found this recipe except I substituted the plain white bread with cinnamon raisin bread.

When I was younger I never really got what all the fuss was over egg nog.  Ya, sure I didn’t mind it, but I remember my brother drinking it by the litre-full and thought he was kinda crazy.  I guess as I get older I don’t mind a glass over the holidays with a sprinkle of nutmeg, of course, but the way I really enjoy it is in anything baked!

So, now on with the challenge!  There’s this girl, #NinaRoy who despises egg nog.  Now, I never met this girl before, but I need your help to convince her to like egg nog.  She can’t stand it!  I’m also sending her recipes, tweets, Pinterest and Instagram pics, and Facebook posts just to convince her that egg nog is yummy!  Can you help me out?  Aw, thanks!  I knew I could count on you!  Here’s how you can help:

  • Tweet about any egg nog recipe, picture, story, etc. and how delicious it is with #NinaRoy in your tweet.
  • Post your egg nog recipes, stories, pictures, etc. on this Facebook page
  • Take egg nog pics with Instagram and include #NinaRoy in your description.

Oh, did I also mention you could also WIN FREE STUFF?  You can!  Check out this site to enter.

Cinnamon Raisin Egg Nog Bake

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 55 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Yield: 16 servings

This recipe is perfect for holiday entertaining. The egg nog with the Cinnamon Raisin Bread is a perfect combination!


  • 12 slices of Cinnamon Raisin Bread
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups eggnog
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Streusel Topping:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces


Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Tear Cinnamon Raisin Bread into chunks, or cut into cubes, and evenly place in the pan.
In a large bowl, mix together eggs, eggnog, sugar, vanilla extract, and nutmeg. Pour evenly over bread. Cover pan and store in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add butter pieces and cut into the dry mixture using a fork or your hands. Combine until the mixture resembles sand with a few pea sized chunks. Cover and store mixture in the refrigerator.
When you’re ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove pan from refrigerator and sprinkle crumb mixture over the top. Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the egg nog bake is set and golden brown.
Enjoy warm!

Homemade Coconut Larabars

Lately I’ve been trying to eat healthy and I’m trying to avoid any processed food. It’s actually not that hard but when it comes to having a little sweet treat there’s always added sugar and things I can’t pronounce. When I first tasted Larabars I loved them but at $1.69 each I knew I had […]

Cheesy Quinoa and Spinach Bake | A Sweet Baker

Cheesy Quinoa and Spinach Bake

A few years ago my husband made a tri-color quinoa dish that was so tasty.  One layer was red (from sundried tomatoes), another layer was green (from pesto), and the final layer was light brown (from plain quinoa).  It was a time consuming dish to layer all the ingredients but the final dish was so […]
