The seasonal flavors of eggnog, rum extract and nutmeg shine through in these moist, golden loaves. Tender slices go great with a cup of coffee. —Beverly Elmore, Spokane, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons rum extract

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. In another bowl, beat the eggs, eggnog, sugar, butter and extracts; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Pour into three greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 3 loaves.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • That's the spirit! Rum, brandy or whiskey can be swapped for the rum extract if you don't have it in your pantry.
  • Pay homage to another holiday cocktail, the Tom and Jerry, by adding a bit more spice to your batter. Try 1/8 teaspoon each of cloves and allspice.
  • To make removal a breeze, line mini loaf pans with parchment paper. Draping the parchment a couple of inches over the sides forms a sling you can use to pop the loaves right out.
  • To score a rustic yet chic presentation, tie with pretty string for easy gifting!
  • Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared eggnog.

    "Thought this was a little bland so I added some fresh cranberries and chopped pecans. It really perked it up. Made about 30 loaves last Christmas for gifts. Plan to make more this year."

    "Gave these delicious loaves as Christmas gifts. My friends & family loved them. Only change I made was to add 1 teaspoon of vanilla & 3 of rum instead of the suggested 2 of each. Yum."
