Eggnog Bread

This Eggnog Bread Recipe has a really good eggnog flavor. If you didn't frost it, I think it would be great chopped up as a french toast bake!

But in all reality, it would be long gone before you could even do that because it is so delicious!

Have you ever wondered why we associate eggnog with the Christmas season? I have...so I googled it!

While culinary historians debate its exact lineage, most agree eggnog originated from the early medieval Britain “posset,” a hot, milky, ale-like drink. By the 13th century, monks were known to drink a posset with eggs and figs.

Milk, eggs, and sherry were foods of the wealthy, so eggnog was often used in toasts to prosperity and good health.

Eggnog became tied to the holidays when the drink hopped the pond in the 1700s. American colonies were full of farms—and chickens and cows—and cheaper rum, a soon-signature ingredient.
