Taste of Home publishes a good recipe for eggnog bread on its website. The recipe calls for the incorporation of candied fruits, nuts and raisins. The recipe serves 16 people.
To make eggnog bread using Taste of Home’s recipe, heat an oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and grease an 8-inch by 4-inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, beat 2 large eggs with 3/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup melted butter until blended well. In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Beat the dry ingredients into the butter and egg mixture, alternating beating in the flour mixture with 1 cup of eggnog and beating well after each addition. Fold in 1/2 cup each red and green candied cherries, chopped pecans and raisins.
Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan. Bake the eggnog bread in the oven for 50 to 60 minutes. Test it by inserting a toothpick into the center of the cake; if it comes out clean, remove the cake from the oven. Leave the cake in the pan for about 10 minutes to cool, and then remove the cake, placing it on a wire rack.
