Eggnog Fruit Bread Recipe

Presents from the pantry are a tradition in my family, and this moist, fruity quick bread is a favorite. I wrap loaves in cellophane and garnish with stickers and curly ribbons. —Margo Stich, Rochester, Minnesota

"This is a wonderful, festive holiday bread! If you like fruit cake, you'll enjoy this recipe.

DO NOT use light eggnog and do not overbake. I add a full tsp of rum extract."
