Eggnog Bread

Makes 1 - 9x5 inch loaf 

     "This cake gets better with age. It tastes like Christmas! Smaller loaves make excellent gifts. Use fresh eggnog, not the canned stuff."

2 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup eggnog
2 teaspoons rum flavored extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease bottom only of a 9x5 inch loaf pan, or three 6x3 inch loaf pans.

Beat eggs in large bowl. Stir in sugar, melted butter, eggnog, rum extract, and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Stir into eggnog mixture, just enough to moisten dry ingredients. Pour batter into
prepared pan or pans.

Bake bread in large pan for 40 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Breads baked in the smaller pans require 25 to 40 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack, and cool completely. Wrap tightly, and store in the refrigerator.

Preheat over to 350 degrees F.
Grease & flour two 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pans.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
2 cups sugar

In a large bowl, sift together the above dry ingredients and mix well.  Make a well in the center.  Set aside.

4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 ½ cups vegetable oil
2 cups thawed, drained, frozen, sweetened strawberries,
reserve juice.
2 cups chopped pecans or black walnuts

In a small bowl, mix slightly beaten eggs, reserved juice and oil. 
Pour into flour mixture and stir just until all the ingredients are moistened.  Fold in the strawberries and nuts, trying to keep the strawberries intact.  Spoon batter into 2 greased & floured 9x5x3" loaf pans. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.   Start testing for doneness at 55 minutes; because of the strawberries, this bread will be more moist that most breads.

This is the best Strawberry Bread recipe I've tried.

Optional  Glaze Ingredients:
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 to 4 tablespoons milk

Combine powdered sugar, vanilla extract and enough milk for desired glazing consistency in small bowl. Drizzle over cooled cake.

Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pans. Serve hot or cold.
