"Someone once gave me this recipe as something to do with leftover egg nog (we drink the stuff all year round). It's so luscious and yummy I usually make up a batch of the stuff just to make this cake, and consider the leftovers for drinking."

"Holy Cow, this is good bread! It's so easy to mix up and bake, and the end result is a neat little loaf that's sweet and yummie! Used your Safe Egg Nog in this, and boy, that's good stuff, too! Thanks for sharing, Mirjam. Definitely goes on my "Must-Make" list! Laudee"
"This is really a delicious bread. Everyone really enjoyed having it for our Christmas brunch. I saved a little bit and ate it today after church and it still was wonderful. Thanks, Mirjam for a great recipe."
"Wonderful holiday bread. Nice taste. This went quickly on Christmas Day."
"I had just 1 cup of eggnog left over from the holidays so decided to give this recipe a try. It was simple to prepare and a real treat to taste! A great recipe for the holidays. We especially enjoyed the cinnamon swirl within the bread! "
"Yummy! I left out the pecans since our family isn't big on nuts. The toffee bits are great. I do recommend watching closely during the last part of the baking - mine was over baked and I think my family would have liked it more had I pulled it out of the oven sooner."
"This bread has a very good taste. I omitted the pecans (I didn't have any) and I even screwed up and put all the cinnamon swirl mix in the middle of the bread instead of saving some for the top and it still turned out great! I just sprinkled some cinnamon and sugar on top instead. It did stick to the bottom of my pan a bit but that's probably my own fault. "
"This is delicious! I saw eggnog on special at the supermarket the other day to sell off the Christmas stock so I decided to try this bread and I'm glad I did! I'm going to bake a couple more to put in the freezer. Thanks, Mirjam!"
"This is THE BEST STUFF EVER!!! I made one loaf just to try it and will be making more this week. It looks beautiful, it tastes wonderful, the house smells delicious while it's baking - it's moist and very dense and just delightful. I had two other recipes to try but I don't need them now - this is a keeper!! Thank you!!!"
"Wonderful bread! I usually don't bake but this was a great bread for a beginner like me to try. I left out the nuts since I was giving it away as part of a treat tray but kept all other ingredients the same. Very moist and tasty! Thanks for sharing, Annacia. ***Made for PRMR***"
"Beautiful bread, very moist and so delicious! I made this for my Sunday morning meeting, and as one of the ladies can't have nuts, I doubled the toffee pieces instead of using pecans - it was fantastic! So fantastic that I had nothing left to take a picture of! Awesome recipe, Annacia - thanks so much for sharing it! DH has already been asking me to make it again because he didn't get to try it and it smelled so good while baking! Made for PRMR Tag."
"This is the best bread ever! It tasted like cake. I did not have toffee pieces and so I substituted 1/4 cup of brown sugar for the toffee. It was very tasty. The loaf didn't last 24 hours since everyone kept snacking on it. :) Thank you for posting this."
"You are so right this is a wonderful christmas quick bread! Love the toffee, cinnamon combination. I ground the pecans very fine. I used store bought (light)eggnog worked great. It has a great eggnog flavor. I found it overflowed a bit in my pan. I put a baking sheet under the pan when baking. Baked up nicely in 60 minutes, a very nice moist loaf. Thanks Annacia for sharing this recipe."
"This bread has great flavour but I just had a really tough time with it. I watched the bread closely (as suggested by other reviewers) but the edges were still very browned & crusty before the centre was cooked. When I tried to slice the bread, it fell apart at the swirls. The only thing I did different was to substitute pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon in the bread (only because I ran out of cinnamon)."
"This is sooooo good! I made a loaf to send into DH's office and we keep snitching pieces, LOL! I made as posted and used a 9x5 loaf pan and it took the 65 minutes to bake. The loaf is moist and very flavorful. I will be making this again and again ~ thanks so much for posting a keeper!"
"Very Delicous!! I love eggnog and all the flavors blended nicely together. The cinnamon swirl really gave this bread something extra special!"
"Let me say, first of all, that I substituted the toffee pieces with chopped cranberries that I needed to use up. Consequently, this was, I assume a little less sweet than it would be in the original recipe, but delicious nonetheless. This is the reason for the lack of stars on my review. Otherwise followed the recipe with a few minor subs- used Sucanat for the sugar, whole wheat pasty flour for the flour, and part Cinnamon Plus (#45672) and part mace for the nutmeg. Rich and flavorful. Not too much eggnog flavor- just right. Even anti-eggnog BF liked it. Pretty with the eggnog swirl. I honestly found this to be a tad dry- and like DDW I didn't find this needed quite the full hour of bake time. Pretty with the cinnamon swirls. Overall a really yummy bread, thanks Mirj!!"
"Thought this was dry with little eggnog flavor. I followed everything as stated. After reading the reviews I thought for sure this would be a winner. "
