We Need to Talk About Eggnog

Pumpkin Eggnog Bread Recipe with Creamy Eggnog Glaze

Friends, we need to talk about eggnog. Specifically, where you are on the love / hate scale with it?

Eggnog is one of those things where each year around this time, I get incredibly tempted by the freshly stocked shelves of eggnog. Things go down exactly like this…

  1. I purchase a 1/2 gallon of eggnog
  2. As soon as I get it home, I have one small glass
  3. As soon as I finish drinking that one glass, I remember I really don’t love eggnog
  4. I spend the next week using my eggnog in recipes, because I do really like the flavor of eggnog, just not actual eggnog itself.

 

Glass-Milk-Jar-of-Eggnog

So, given the scenario above, you can hopefully understand why over the next couple of weeks you might see a few more recipes using eggnog as an ingredient than usual. I fell prey to the temptation and now need to do my penance, by creating some tempting recipes to use my annual eggnog up.

Creamy Eggnog Glaze Recipe

This Pumpkin Eggnog Bread with Creamy Eggnog Glaze is so flavorful and moist…tasty on its own, but the star of this little shindig is the glaze. Oh wow. It’s creamy and sweet and has just enough eggnog flavor to give it that special boost for the season. Tempted? You should be. Once you give this a taste you may run out and buy a jug of eggnog simply so you can have an excuse to use it up with this recipe!

Personalize a coffee mug by using a sharpie marker and baking itBefore I share the eggnog pumpkin bread recipe with you, I have to give a shout out to my friend Ali from Gimme Some Oven for giving me this sweet and thoughtful coffee mug. She found the idea on Pinterest (take a Sharpie marker, decorate your mug, and bake at 350° for 30 minutes, and voila… you have an adorable, personalized mug!) Thank you, Ali… it’s my new favorite for my #ShotOfCoffee.

Ok… now on to the recipe!

  1. I do not like eggnog, but for some reason I find myself craving anything baked with it. Makes no sense.

  2. I am SO with you on the eggnog front, I always think I am going to love it, but end up not wanting to touch it!

  3. I’m a fan of baking with eggnog, but can’t really drink the stuff plain. This looks great!

  4. This made me giggle. I am not a fan but my hubs is & the kids love it. So hubs buys it & then says he loves it until the guilt sets in. He says that he would drink it all season if it didn’t have 1,789,465 calories in each sip. :) We bought some & then I used it for cooking. That recipe come later this week.

  5. I needed a way to use up the last of the jug I picked up. Thanks!

  6. So as I was reading this post, I thought it was a lesson on self restraint and was so impressed with your “just one glass” motto. Then I kept reading and realized it’s because you hate egg nog. LOL. PS: I wish I hated it. :)

  7. That’s a cute coffee mug and yes, it’s eggnog time! Love the recipe, especially with the combination of pumpkin.

  8. Kindred spirits on the forget-we-don’t-love-eggnog thing. heh We usually buy the “light” version. It’s hard to find around here and sells out pretty quickly, but it actually tastes better to me. Not soooo rich and gooey.

    Here’s my one and only use-up-the-eggnog recipe:

    P.S. Haven’t been here in a while. LOVE the new look and that slide out on the side. (What plugin does that?) Good work!

  9. This eggnog situation is so so true. I too feel like I would enjoy eggnog, or rather should, but I really don’t. But I am fairly sure I would like a bread or cake made with eggnog. That only makes sense. And it is so very sweet, the mug, I love it, and the thoughts with it. It is perfect for your shots of coffee to brighten the day.

    P.P.S. I tried to post this and got an error message that said the item I was looking for couldn’t be found. ???? Sorry if this is a duplicate.

  11. I have a very similar love of eggnog! Your recipe looks perfect!

  12. I am definitely on the don’t like eggnog camp. Probably from growing up lactose intolerant – and still not able to handle a ton of dairy now – and the thought of egg in a drink grossed me out, I just was never a fan. I also have a friend that believes eggnog needs its own season. He buys his first GALLON in September. And I think his rum to nog ratio in his glass is about 80:20, so really for him drinking egg nog is just an excuse for more rum. He loves eggnog, me not so much, however,baked goods using it always taste amazing. My mom makes a pumpkin eggnog pie that’s surprisingly good. For pie (I am also not really a pie fan but that’s another story. This bread looks really good, like everything you make. And I LOVE the mug – yeah pinterest!

  13. I am so on board with this..wow, wow!!

  14. I thought I didn’t like eggnog, but then I tried Shatto’s pumpkin eggnog… it’s like melted ice cream! This bread looks so rich and delicious.

  15. I do the same with eggnog. I like it, but I don’t like to drink it. Seems strange. The mug. Oh the mug. Ali is a genius and a supremely sweet friend.

  16. This looks amazing!! I don’t care for eggnog but I love the flavor so I like to bake with it – I’m not a milk drinker, that’s why I don’t like to actually drink eggnog.

  17. oh my gosh, this looks delicious. hilarious…your eggnog tendencies sound just like mine! i do the same thing!

  18. Pumpkin AND eggnog?? OH MY GOODNESS. This is so inspiring. I need to get on this…

  19. Kristen, I love this post and I LOVE eggnog. Your bread sounds amazing!

  20. This bread looks so yum! I am with you I love the taste and smell of eggnog but just to drink it straight up…it’s like drinking snot. ; /ewe! I have a bread pudding with caramel sauce my family loves, and an eggnog cocktail that is killer going to have to get me son NOG!
