This deliciously festive loaf was inspired by my amazing mom, again!  It’s funny because she doesn’t actually like eggnog, but she loves and supports me and always sends me recipe inspiration, even if she doesn’t like something but knows I do!  She sent me an eggnog inspiration and I thought – definitely an eggnog loaf!  It’s not only a great dessert for Christmas day or Christmas Eve, but it is so good with morning coffee or tea, or for a sweet snack throughout the day!

Enjoy this delicious loaf, have a wonderful Christmas or holiday, and I will have more fabulous recipes next year! 

Wishing you good health and prosperity in 2021,

Equipment

  • prepared loaf pan: lined with parchment paper or foil
  • stand mixer (optional)

Ingredients
  

Eggnog Loaf

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Eggnog Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons eggnog
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
 

Make the eggnog loaf

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare a loaf pan (see notes). Add all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl or stand mixer - the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon - and mix until combined. Then add the two eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla and mix well until a wet batter forms.
  • Add the batter to the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes. Use the toothpick test at 50 minutes and then every 5 minutes after that to make sure it is done but not over baked. You'll know when the loaf is done when your toothpick comes out clean with no wet batter. After is is done, remove the loaf from the pan and let the loaf cool for about 15 minutes.

Make the eggnog glaze

  • While the loaf is cooling make the eggnog glaze. Mix all of the ingredients together - powdered sugar, eggnog and vanilla - together until combined and a slightly thick but still runny, opaque glaze forms. If you like a thinner glaze you can add more eggnog and if you prefer a thicker glaze, add a bit more powdered sugar.
  • Pour the glaze all over the eggnog loaf, making sure you cover the whole surface and let it drip down over the sides. Cut into generous slices and enjoy!

Notes

I like to prepare my loaf pans by putting a rectangular piece of parchment paper or foil into the loaf pan and making sure extra is hanging over the sides.  This will make it easy to pop out the loaf after it is done baking.  I also always add cooking spray or coconut oil all over the parchment paper or foil to make sure my loaf comes out perfectly without sticking to anything.
