Just about when I think my holiday baking is done, and I cannot clean another pan, a friend surprises me with warm bread from their kitchen or fresh chocolate fudge. While I love to bake, it is so much fun to enjoy goodies from the kitchen of someone I love. I am sharing one of my all time fave recipes today that has become a staple for us to serve around Christmas and for gift-giving as well. It also freezes very well, so I usually make some ahead of time (now) and thaw it out for gift giving at Christmas. It also make an excellent hostess gift or gift for a new mom.
Another quick idea before we get baking, you can measure and freeze eggnog in 1 1/2 cup servings and you will have eggnog year around to make this bread anytime you want! It freezes and keeps well for quite a few months.
