We are big eggnog people here. Drinking it straight with some brandy, not so much. But we use it for everything else, especially in our morning lattes. I personally love to bake with eggnog and Chris loves to eat it. We ♥ eggnog.
I got my hands on some cinnamon chips this year. Have you tried it? It’s incredible! It’s so fragrant and pronounce that you don’t need to add cinnamon to your recipe. And so I decided to throw some in with this batter along with spiced rum, for good health. Trust me, you’ll fall in love with this loaf! Cinnamon chips are common around this time of the year in the baking aisle. If you can’t find it, Amazon is a great resource. King Arthur Flour is also a good resource too for all things chips. Here’s to some eggnog rum bread with some cinnamon chips. YUM! Have a great week lovelies!
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 2/3 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, melted
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup of spiced rum
- 1 cup of eggnog
- 1 cup of cinnamon chips, divided
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch loaf pan.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt; set aside.
Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) mix together sugar, butter, egg, spiced rum and eggnog. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Fold in 3/4 cup of cinnamon chips.
Pour batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of cinnamon chips on top. Bake for 52-57 minutes or until toothpick/tester inserted into the center comes out with a few crumbs attached. Let the bread cool completely before cutting into the pan.
