Then for the glaze, you need more eggnog of course, as well as some powdered sugar, vanilla, rum extract and nutmeg. First, you'll get your oven ready by preheating it to 350° F. Then get a loaf pan and grease it up. Next up, gather your ingredients and whisk up the dry ingredients and then in another bowl, you'll mix up the wet ingredients.
Then mix all of the recipe's ingredients together gradually, and when they are completely combined, you will pour the batter into the pan to put into the oven. Now all you have to do is bake the bread for 65 to 70 minutes. While the eggnog bread is baking, you can make your glaze. Just mix the powdered sugar, eggnog, vanilla extract, rum extract, and nutmeg and set it aside. Then, when the bread comes out of the oven allow it to cool completely and then when it's cool, you can drizzle the glaze over the cake and make it look really beautiful. Then cut it up into thick slices and serve on plates. If you're looking for more cake recipes and dessert recipes Two Peas And Their Pod is a great source for all different kinds of recipes.
