This one always surprises people. Even people who don't like eggnog like this bread! It was a holiday favorite at my coffee shop and has earned a place in my "holiday traditions" file. It makes great muffins too and freezes well. * The Eggnog Bread is the one on the far right of photo. Also pictured,,, and Cranberry Orange breads.
