This is a keeper.I love eggnog and the thought of having in a quickbread was a great idea. The flavor was delicate. The only change I made was to half the nutmeg cause I'm not a nutmeg lover but next time I'll put the full amount cause it could use the extra spice. Thanks for a delicious recipe.

I just made this bread today. Quite different from the ususal loaf bread recipes. I think it would tastes good with either a seedless raspberry jam, or some cherry preserves, on the side. My husband does not like eggnog, but said he liked this bread. I can't wait to bake it again, and add some frozen sliced cranberries. Adding crushed candy canes sounds abit interesting. We'll have to give that a try as well. Devon, thank - you for the recipe, it was good.
