Eggnog Quick Bread – Christmas Making and Baking

I’m finishing up my Christmas making and baking.

My mom called me last night to tell me that she was going to come over to our house for Christmas.  It’s been many years since she’s been at our house for Christmas, so it was a nice surprise.  The one thing she asked for was homemade goodies.  I’m almost finished with the Christmas making and baking.  There are a few goodies left to make.

This eggnog bread was one of those things.  It’s easy to put together and makes a lot.

Eggnog Doughnuts – Christmas Making and Baking

I bought some eggnog to make eggnog bread. Since I had some of the eggnog left, I decided to find a recipe to make eggnog doughnuts. This recipe is moist and delicious. It paired well with my coffee flavored with my peppermint mocha creamer. It would also be delicious with my eggnog creamer.

To make the doughnuts, you need a doughnut pan.
