Christmas Eggnog Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by luvcookn

This came from a friend. I made this as written and it turns out beautifully every time. I always include a loaf of this bread in my Christmas crates that we make up for my family. I have included 3 variations I came up with. We love this bread toasted. Yes...toasted. What can possibly be wrong about toasted cake? Try just might like it. Try it for breakfast instead of regular toast. This makes a large loaf and freezes beautifully.

This turned out perfectly, and is one of the best breakfast breads I have ever had! I used dried cranberries & walnuts, and it was superb.. definitely a keeper.
