I love this bread. I usually serve it with sweetened cream cheese. (Cooking time is approximate, and is meant to represent the time of a bread machine's full cycle.)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 14 teaspoons yeast
  • 3 cups flour (preferably bread flour, but all-purpose flour will work too)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 34 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cup eggnog
  • 14 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut up
  • 12 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 12 cup glace cherries, halved


  1. Place all ingredients except cherries in bread machine pan in order listed.
  2. Use normal white 1 1/2 lb cycle.
  3. Add the cherries at the beep (or at the time in the cycle when you would normally add fruit or nuts- see your bread machine's manual for details).

this was ok...very faint eggnog flavor, a little sweet. did not rise very much, and was not a smooth top - would require a few changes to make a better loaf

Very disapointing. It turned out rather heavy and hadweird flavor. Definitely not one of the favorites in my house hold, i had to throw it away.

I loved the idea of this & the bread was okay but really dense & heavy. I cooked on a regular cycle but would like to try this again using rapid cycle to see if there's any difference, I think I would also add a tad more nutmeg next time too. Thanks!
