Christmas Eggnog Bread

"This came from a friend. I made this as written and it turns out beautifully every time. I always include a loaf of this bread in my Christmas crates that we make up for my family. I have included 3 variations I came up with. We love this bread toasted. Yes...toasted. What can possibly be wrong about toasted cake? Try just might like it. Try it for breakfast instead of regular toast. This makes a large loaf and freezes beautifully."

  1. This turned out perfectly, and is one of the best breakfast breads I have ever had! I used dried cranberries & walnuts, and it was superb.. definitely a keeper.
  2. Really great toasted!


Yikes!! My daughter had fun in PaintShop Pro!! What she can do with a picture. My husband and I live in the "bush" and hour from the closest town. Life here is quiet, yet so much more busy than when we lived in the "city". We grow our own veggies, several kinds of berries, and grow lots of hard neck organic garlic. We have 60 chickens, 4 dogs, 1 cat, 1 bird. Quite the menagerie. I make all my own breads, and sell them (along with the eggs). I have a group of friends whom I make extra goodies for. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="New Kids Participation Banner"> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src =""> <img src="" > <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
