Are you a fan of eggnog?

I think many people, myself included, find it hard to drink a glass of eggnog, it’s too heavy. But I have been enjoying a splash of it in my morning coffee – I do love the flavor!

Cranberry Eggnog Bread

The bread is not hard to make! You will combine all of the dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, salt and spices. Then you will beat together butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs. Next you will alternate the dry ingredients with eggnog until everything is fully combined. Before adding the cranberries you will toss them in a bit of flour, this lightly coats them so they will not all sink to the bottom of your loaf. Lastly, you will fold the cranberries into the batter, add the batter to a prepared loaf pan and bake! It will take 65-70 minutes for the bread to bake fully, so be patient! Cool, slice and enjoy!
