Holiday Eggnog Bread

The holidays only come once a year — which means eggnog only comes once a year. Smith's Eggnog hits shelves every October through December, giving you exactly 3 months to get your annual Eggnog fix! As much as we love to devour Eggnog straight from the carton, it's a fun holiday tradition of ours to pay homage to the season, (and the Eggnog), by incorporating it into as many of our favorite holiday desserts as possible. This delightful quick bread is great for breakfast or a snack and also makes a thoughtful hostess gift for all of those parties you'll be attending. Start by greasing a 9" x 5" loaf pan. Beat eggs in a large bowl, stir in sugar, butter, Smith's Eggnog and extracts. Next, combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just moistened. Pour the Holiday Eggnog Bread batter into the pan and bake for an hour. After about 10 minutes out of the oven, turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Once you smell those festive aromas in the air during baking, you'll probably want to devour your Holiday Eggnog Bread right away, but if there's any left over, store it in the refrigerator ... right next to your cartons of Smith's Eggnog!
