Egg Nog Bread Recipe with Rum Glaze

If you love eggnog, you are going to be in love with this egg nog bread with rum glaze. It is moist and flavorful and the rum glaze adds just enough sweetness without it tasting like cake. I know a lot of people who do not like eggnog to drink, but like the flavor of this bread.

Can This Bread Be Made Ahead

This bread tastes amazing fresh from the oven, but it also tastes amazing the next day. The bread will last a few days so you can make it a day or two before you need it. The bread will last about 5 days before going bad. As the bread starts to dry out, a great way to make it taste amazing is to use butter and grill it. This creates a sweet and salty flavor that is amazing.

Can I make the Rum Glaze Nonalcoholic?

You can absolutely make this glaze nonalcoholic. There are two simple ways to create a nonalcoholic glaze for eggnog bread. You can make a glaze with milk and instead of the rum add rum extract. Another option is to make it an eggnog glaze. Swap the rum with eggnog to create a sweet glaze that complements the eggnog bread perfectly.

There is also rum in the bread itself. For this, you will substitute a teaspoon or 2 for the rum.

Can this Eggnog Loaf Be Frozen

If you have more bread than you can eat before it goes bad, you can freeze it. Cut the eggnog loaf into slices. Wrap each slice bread in plastic wrap. Once it is wrapped put it inside of a freezer bag. This keeps the bread together and provides extra protection from getting freezer burn. If you are worried about the glaze sticking to the plastic you can put the slices of eggnog loaf on a plate and freeze it first. This prevents the glaze from sticking to the plastic. Once it is frozen, you can wrap it and move it to the freezer bag. Be sure to unwrap the bread before letting it thaw or the glaze will stick.

Ingredients for Eggnog Bread Recipe

  • All-purpose flour
  • Instant vanilla pudding
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Ground nutmeg
  • Unsalted butter
  • Granulated sugar
  • Eggs
  • Dark rum
  • Vanilla extract
  • Eggnog
  • Water
  • Confectioners’ sugar

How to Make Eggnog Bread Recipe

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bottom and sides of one 9 x 5-inch loaf pan or three 3×5-inch loaf pans; dust with flour, tapping out excess.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, instant pudding, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg; Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar together until very light, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add vanilla and rum and beat until combined. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture, beat to combine. Add eggnog and mix on low speed until just combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake 40 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing loaf to a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Use a toothpick to poke holes in the tops and sides of the warm loaf.

Meanwhile, while the bread is baking, bring granulated sugar, rum, and water to boil in a small saucepan and simmer over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Whisk in butter until smooth. Cool rum syrup to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Reserve 5 to 6 tablespoons of syrup to make the glaze. Brush warm bread with remaining rum syrup and cool completely about 2 hours.

Whisk confectioners’ sugar into 4 tablespoons of reserved rum syrup until smooth. The mixture should be thick but pourable. Add up to 2 tablespoons of rum syrup if the mixture is too stiff. If it is still too stiff add eggnog to mixture one tablespoon at a time until the correct consistency. Pour the glaze over the top of the loaf and let it drip down the sides. Let the glaze harden, about 15 minutes, before serving.
