Egg Nog Bread

I don’t know about you, but anything that has ‘bread’ in it’s name, I’m all over it!  I love slicing through freshly baked bread a few minutes after it comes out of the bread maker and slathering it with butter.  For a few minutes I’m in heaven…..that’s until the kids start screaming or someone’s tugging on my pant-legs to try a piece too!   I’ll gladly share but I want that first piece for myself.

When I had some extra egg nog on hand I decided to use it in a bread that we could warm up over the holidays and enjoy when company comes over.  I figured a bread with egg nog in it would be something different but also festive.  The only thing I’ll have to make when I thaw this is some Egg Nog Glaze to go on top.  Although it doesn’t need it as this cake is moist, dense and is perfect plain.  I just figure the more, the better!

Now with only a couple more weeks until Christmas, how many people are all set for the holidays?  I know I’m not.  I’ve decorated the house, froze a bunch of baking and bought most of my presents but there’s still some more I need to do.  I want to get it done this week so that I just have to pick up any last-minute things the week before Christmas.  This year we’re having everyone at our house so I’d like to be prepared so I can enjoy my company and relax over the holidays!

P.S.  Don’t forget to check out the Egg Nog Challenge page and submit something so we can convince Nina Roy to love egg nog.  You can WIN some great prizes!

Homemade Coconut Larabars | A Sweet Baker

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 […]
