Eggnog Loaf - #FoodieExtravaganza

Extravaganza is celebrating National Eggnog month. This eggnog loaf is so easy to throw together that I've made it twice in the last 3 days. It's also a great base that I can't wait to play around with some more. I'm a huge fan of cinnamon so of course, I would love to swirl some in. But for today, the focus is on nutmeg. Foodie  Now, I don't drink eggnog but I always assumed that nutmeg was the only (main) spice used. While I was trying to figure out what to make, I started reading about the history of eggnog. I was quite surprised when they mentioned cinnamon. To me it has always been the "nutmegy", milk drink. I didn't add the cinnamon though. I'm letting the nutmeg shine. Next time, cinnamon, next time.

Be sure to check out the other eggnog treats below. Happy National Eggnog Month!

  1. I know what you mean, it always seems to be nutmeg-dominated, but a little cinnamon works well too when I have made myself. Sounds like a tasty loaf.

  2. I've always like cinnamon more than nutmeg in my eggnog. And I really love a quick bread!

  3. This sounds pretty easy and delicious! Cinnamon does sound like it would be good here.

  4. That does look super simple, Kelly, but what a beautiful sweet loaf! I like nutmeg now that I'm a grown up, in small doses, but my heart is always with cinnamon.
