What is a quick bread?

Quick breads are a bread that used baking powder and baking soda instead of yeast as a leavening agent. Usually it’s in a form of loaf (like this), muffins, scones or a soda bread. Quick breads are just as they sound quick. You do not have to wait for the dough to rise.

How to make eggnog bread

Set oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9″x5″ loaf pan by greasing it. You can use olive oil spray or baking spray.

Beat eggs in a large bowl then mix in sugar, eggnog, butter and vanilla extract until combined.

Sift together in a smaller bowl dry ingredients flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. You can use a whisk instead of a sifter.

Add flour mixture into eggnog mixture. I like to do this one cup at a time. Stir until combined make sure not to over mix. Pour into greased loaf pan.

Bake 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. For the last 15 minutes of baking I like to cover the loaf with foil so the top doesn’t get too brown. Let cool for a few minutes then remove cake from loaf pan.

Cool completely then frost with eggnog frosting, recipe below.
