This bread did come out beautiful and moist! However, I thought it lacked in flavor. I was really hoping for a bread that tasted a lot like eggnog and I don't think this delivered it. MPO.. I gave it two stars for very easy preparation..

I had my husband make this for me because I am not a baker. I don't even like to make pancakes. Something about having to deal with flour. Anyways, this was pretty good. We used walnuts and used those cherries that you put on top of ice cream.
