This is my favorite holiday bread to make and I am not that much of an eggnog lover! Make great gifts! You can freeze the eggnog and make year long, too!

I made this to the letter, and it was wonderful. I am an eggnog fan, but I have lots of family that isn't. They didn't even know the difference! It tastes like a denser butter pound cake. I also prepared these ahead of time and froze them. They were just as wonderful defrosted as they were straight out of the oven. It was a great option for last minute holiday get-togethers.

I made this bread for Thanksgiving, though I used my own eggnog (since I had none, lol). Every single person who ate this bread asked for a recipe, and one of the families had theirs the next morning in french toast. A hit all around and very reminiscent of Challah but MUCH easier. To make without eggnog, use 1 cup water, 1/3 cup dried milk powder (OR 1 cup milk), 1 extra tablespoon vanilla, an extra egg, and an extra 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. This is incredible, for sure.

I made this for a Christmas buffet today and found it to be a very easy recipe and also very tasty. I don't care for rum flavoring so I used a little extra vanilla.
