    This was a very good recipe. I had read the reviews about it being a little dry so I added a 1/2 cup more eggnog and a packet of vanilla instant pudding to the mix. It did the trick! It was so moist, everyone loved it! Will make this a Chriatmas treat from now on! Thanks!  -  27 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I LOVE THIS BREAD! I have made it in mini-muffins, regular muffins, mini loaves and regular loaves. I have added many different flavorings in stead of the rum flavoring. I have made coconut eggnog bread, orange eggnong bread, (tastes like a creamsicle!), lemon, chocolate, maple, butter. The possibilities are endless. After Christmas I buy eggnog (when it goes on sale) I then separate it into 1 cup measurements. I freeze them so I can make this bread in the middle of summer. It dosen't change the flavor or texture of the eggnog. This is an awesome bread and will be making it many times. I also use pumpkin pie spice instead of just nutmeg, It's really good that way too. It does dry out quickly, but all that means it that you have to eat more of it!  -  17 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The best "holiday" quick bread! Cream butter with sugar and add 3 tablespoons oil to improve moisture. A very soft almost cake like bread. My 3 yr. old son loves this bread as well as the whole family. Very easy to make.  -  29 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
