Hello! Welcome to Quiltmaker’s Countdown to Christmas!
Today I want to tell you about the best.Christmas.food.ever.
When I found this recipe for Eggnog Quick Bread, I knew I had to try it. Oh my. Is it ever yummy. Kelli has graciously let us share her recipe here:
Eggnog Quick Bread
2 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup sugar
1 cup eggnog
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 1 bread pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Set aside. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, stir in sugar, eggnog, butter, vanilla and almond extract. Add mixture to flour and stir just until moistened. Bake 45-60 min. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
Frosting: Mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp. vanilla and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg in small bowl. Add enough eggnog to reach drizzling consistency. Drizzle over bread and serve.
Thanks for sharing with us Kelli!
If you like eggnog, I’m pretty sure you have to make this bread. Seriously. Go put eggnog on your shopping list right now. You can thank me later.
In honor of our Countdown, we also want to share a quilting freebie, Holly and Ribbon Quilting motif. This link takes you toward a pdf you may download and use in many different ways. It’s a fun quilting design for all of those holiday quilts you are going to finish up before Christmas, right?
