Another eggnog filled recipe coming your way! This one is a lot more subtle, but with it’s cinnamony-nutmeg swirl you can’t go wrong. Recipe below!
Eggnog Cinnamon Loaf (adapted from Handmade in the Heartland)
– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 tablespoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 1 egg
– 1 cup eggnog
– 1 tablespoon milk
– 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
– 1/3 cup sour cream
– 1/3 cup granulated sugar
– 1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
– 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
– 2 tablespoons water
– 1/2 cup powdered sugar
– 1 1/2 tablespoons eggnog
Pre-heat the oven to 350°F, and prep a 9×5″ load pan with cooking spray or oil.
In medium bowl combine all your dry ingredients and stir.
Add in the wet ingredients one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add bread dough to prepared loaf pan.
In a small bowl combine the swirl mix ingredients together.
Pour it evenly over the dough and then use a butterknife to swirl it into the dough. Literally just stick in the knife and move it back and forth through your dough to get that cinnamon goodness all swirled in. There will still be quite a bit on top and that’s ok.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.
When it’s done remove the bread from the oven and let cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Then remove it from the pan and let it cool completely on a baking rack.
I totally forgot to make the glaze for mine, but I don’t like icing anyway so I didn’t miss it. If you like icing though then mix the powdered sugar and eggnog together and drizzle it on top of the loaf.
This loaf doesn’t have a super strong eggnog flavor to it, but there’s just enough that you know it’s there. A good treat to have on Christmas morning! What are some of your favorite Christmas morning treats and traditions?
