Top Review by Mrs. Gottrocks

this was good, but I guess I was expecting more flavor, based on the other reviews. The instructions never did say WHEN to add the eggs, but as long as they get in the batter, I guess it does not matter. I found this bread to be somewhat bland, and think it needs more rum extract, or perhaps the real thing!!! I also added dried cherries, which made it look festive, and did add a little more flavor. I will be making it again, only adding my own "twists" to it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Grease only the bottom of a 9x5 loaf pan (or three 5 3/4 x 3 1/4 inch loaf pans). In a large bow beat the eggs.
  3. Blend in sugar, eggnog, butter, rum extract and vanilla extract.
  4. Combine the flour, baking powder, walnuts, salt and nutmeg, stirring to combine.
  5. Mix into the eggnog mixture; stir just enough to moisten the dry ingredients.
  6. Pour the batter into pan(s).
  7. If baking bread in large pan, bake 40-60 minutes, or until a tester in the center comes out clean.
  8. If baking the breads in the smaller pans, bake 35-40 minutes.
  9. Cool 10 minutes, then remove from pan.
  10. Cool breads completely, then wrap tightly. Keep in the refrigerator.
