Recipes Using Eggnog: Cranberry Almond Eggnog Bread

I have been searching for recipes using eggnog since I just found out that December 24th is National Eggnog Day! Eggnog has been a traditional part of holiday festivities in America since the 18th century. Eggnog is a sweetened beverage that is traditionally made with milk or cream, sugar, and whipped eggs (which gives it a frothy texture). It is often topped with a bit of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin spice.  This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

What you need to make this Cranberry Almond Eggnog Bread

Loaf pan – You can use a traditional metal loaf pan sprayed with olive oil. But, it is really so much easier to use a silicone loaf pan. the Cranberry Almond Eggnog Bread will not stick at all if you bake in silicone.

Eggnog – Of course, you will need eggnog. You can buy it ready-made at the grocery store. Or, you can start with an eggnog mix and make it at home.

Ginger grater – If you are going to grate fresh ginger over your eggnog, you’ll want a ginger grater. Can I just say “yum”?

Since we are all HUGE fans of eggnog, it’s very important that I make this recipe as soon as I bring the eggnog into the house.  If I just put the quart of eggnog into the refrigerator and intend to make the recipe later, I’ll return in an hour and the eggnog will all be gone.

Recipes Using Eggnog: Cranberry Almond Eggnog Bread

This recipe is very easy to make.  You can change the additions based on what you have in the house.  My favorites are dried cranberries and slivered almonds. You can substitute raisins, chopped cherries or dried cherries for the cranberries if you prefer. Walnuts or pecans work as well as almonds if that’s what you have on hand.
