    Oh my gosh that looks so delicious! I love eggnog and have never seen it made into a loaf bread. What a perfect holiday gift to give someone too.

  2. Becky says:

    Bread?? I was so busy oooh-ing and aaah-ing over your apron, I must have missed the bread part! 🙂 Oh, now I see the bread… looks tasty! But that apron…. I just adore that! 🙂

  3. Kathy K says:

    This sounds great! I’m going to try it tomorrow.

  4. Linda Olivera says:

    I definitely want to make this one – to eat and for gifts.

  5. Marilyn says:

    My daughter is crazy for eggnog — I need to bake this for her!

  6. Suzy Norwood says:

    Love eggnog want (I will make this). What did you sprinkle on top on the icing. It made it so pretty.

    Love your magazine.

    where did the egg nog come from? store made or home made , recipe please

  8. Kelly Bueker says:

    I hope to add this to my baking before my kids arrive for Christmas! My daughter loves Eggnog too but we have a hard time drinking the entire container of nog since it’s so rich. Now I can use my extra eggnog in this recipe! Yum!

  9. Daniel says:

    This was a HUGE success with my family. Kids love it, and ended making 4 batches for neighbor friends. Everyone loved it.
    Used all organic ingredients, and Einkorn flour is made for this recipe.

  10. Thanks for the great gift idea, girls!

  11. Mary S. says:

    Yummy! I know I will make this again! Very easy to make and the taste is fantastic.

  12. Denise says:

    Where can we get the apron? Is it a bid apron or one that just ties at the waist? I will definitely try the bread. My daughter loves egg nog

      Here’s what my DIL, Ashley, MaryJanesFarm food guru, had to say:
      This apron was an Etsy find, but purchased several years ago. Unfortunately, I don’t recall which shop I bought it from. I tried to find in in my purchase history, but it doesn’t go back far enough. Sorry.

  13. Denise says:

    Does this bread have to be refrigerated since the icing has eggnog in it? Please advise.

    • MaryJane says:

      Here’s what my DIL, Ashley, MaryJanesFarm food guru, had to say:
      If you’re not serving this immediately (or as soon as the icing has firmed up per the final step), it is best to store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve the bread.
