Pumpkin Spice Eggnog Bread

Pumpkin Spice Eggnog Bread

Apparently I have trouble letting go of the seasons and holidays. This happened at the end of summer when I made Pumpkin Apple Spice Cake. It was only the beginning of September and people were pinning pumpkin recipes. And now that I’ve finally made the transition, I’m not ready to let go just yet. I mean, can you blame me? For the last two months my brain has been focused on ”pumpkin spice” non-stop, trying to figure out new recipes to invent that use pumpkin spice. And now I’m just supposed to switch to something else, like peppermint or cranberries? No way. Not gonna happen. Okay, eventually it will. At least this recipe has one component of Christmas: eggnog. So you’ve got to give me props.

So this bread may not look like much, especially when compared to some of my others that are typically drizzled with some type of glaze. See Exhibit A and B. Sorry, that’s the paralegal in me talking. But it’s so moist and when you slather some butter on a slice of this baby, you’ll be in heaven. Trust me. I’ve tried a couple of eggnog bread recipes and they all turn out really dry. I wanted something that was going to be moist, yet crumbly. In order to do that, I had to up the eggnog and add some oil. That’s the trick! So I present to you Pumpkin Spice Eggnog Bread. Let me know what you think!
