Unveiling the Perfect Christmas Eggnog Bread Recipe

Indulge in the Festive Delight: Eggnog Bread with Rum Glaze

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and what better way to spread the festive cheer than with a delectable treat? Our Christmas Eggnog Bread with Rum Glaze is the epitome of holiday indulgence. As you gear up for the season of giving, this recipe promises not only a mouthwatering experience but also a delightful gift option for friends and neighbors.

The Secret Ingredient: Spiced Rum

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes | Serves: 1 Loaf Pan


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of regular eggnog (not low fat)
  • 2 tsp Spiced Rum
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter @ room temperature
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (3.4 ounces of powdered) package of instant French vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Crafting the Culinary Masterpiece

  1. Preheat Oven: Set your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare Pan: Spray your chosen pan with non-stick spray with flour.
  3. Mix Wet Ingredients: In your mixer, blend together eggs, eggnog, rum, sugar, vanilla, and butter until combined.
  4. Prepare Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, sift flour, pudding mix, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.
  5. Combine Mixtures: Add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients, blending until just incorporated. Avoid over-mixing.
  6. Expect Clumpiness: The butter may remain clumpy – that’s expected. It will melt during baking, resulting in a richer texture.
  7. Thicken the Dough: The dough will be thicker; pour it into your prepared pan(s).

Baking Time

  • Mini Loaves: Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Regular Loaf Pan: Takes about 45-55 minutes.

The Finishing Touch: Irresistible Rum Glaze


  • 1 cup sifted confectioners sugar
  • 2 tsp eggnog
  • 2 tbl Spiced Rum
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  1. Whisk and Pour: Whisk together the glaze ingredients and pour it over your cooled eggnog bread.
