I know Eggnog is a pre-christmas, christmas/holiday thing.
I know christmas is over and so are the holidays (wwwhhhhhhhyyyyyy….. :().
But I LOVE all the spices, and the flavour of eggnog.
Annnndd… it’s still freezing cold outside!! Therefore, all I want to do is stay warm and cozy-toasty inside, and wrap myself with a blanket made from this bread.
Is that creepy? …. errr – sorry sometimes I get a little too excited (… or all the time ).
This bread though, is truly that good.
In fact, the first time I made it was before christmas – and after tasting it, I needed to instantly slice it , wrap it , and freeze it just so I wouldn’t gobble down the entire loaf.
Something about it – - it literally just melts.in.your.mouth.
That’s right, no chewing necessary. You could technically call this a lazy person’s bread. Bake it. Pop it in your mouth and just enjoy.
No chewing – just savouring. Now, that’s my kind of bread!!
Soo, don’t just sit there – go pick up a box of eggnog that’s now on sale (YAY!!) and bake yourself some bread.

Combine together all of the dry ingredients – Flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger and salt.
In a standing mixer (you can also use a hand mixer), add butter, cinnamon spread, brown sugar and eggs.
Next, add the dry ingredients alternating with the eggnog.
Only mix until incorporated. After, carefully fold in 1/2 cup of the sliced almonds.
Fill your bread pan, and sprinkle the other 1/2 cup of sliced almonds on top.
Bake for 40 minutes.
