Eggnog Quick Bread with an Orange Glaze
Eggnog Quick Bread is a new twist to a holiday classic drink.
Most Eggnog Quick Breads focus on creating the classic Spiked Eggnog into a bread by adding rum into the batter and the glaze.
We decided to go for a new combo that complements the eggnog flavor without masking it, like the rum. The acidity and sweetness of the orange brings out the best of the tanginess in the eggnog.
We also found that spices were mostly forgotten when it came to most recipes. Sure, some threw in some Nutmeg and Cinnamon and maybe just a small amount of Salt. We decided to bring these spices to higher levels to provide fuller flavor throughout all of the bread, not just the glaze. In addition to increasing the Salt, Nutmeg, and Cinnamon, we added just 1/4 teaspoon of Cardamom. It fully rounded out the flavor palette of the holiday season flavors.
This bread will surely impress and is a great holiday gift for neighbors or friends! We would love to hear how yours turned out in the comments below!
