I just made this bread and turned out well using whole wheat flour and Splenda.. Definately would make again. Think it does need a glaze for added sweetness.

Made this today to serve at Christmas Dinner. Followed the recipe to a T. I've never reviewed a recipe before but had to this time around. This bread was so awful I ended up throwing it out to the birds and will need to make another kind of bread for Christmas tomorrow. Wasted a very expensive 1 3/4 cups of eggnog. No flavor whatsoever.

I LOVE this recipe! It even impressed my mom, who doesn't like even like eggnog! Not too sweet, not too spicy, and it was super easy to make. Will definitely make again!
