Christmas Eggnog Bread...Hallelujah!

  Just got back from a whirlwind trip to NYC with Dick - it was our Christmas gift to each other.  Last year, we decided that since traveling is our favorite thing to do together that we'll just do vacations in place of presents.  Best decision ever!  It's a heckofa lot better than getting a million random things that I can't think of a single reason why the man I married would even imagine I could want in a million years.  Let me just say that I thought I was in the Christmas Spirit before the trip, but after being in the Big Apple during the Holiday Season there is not even the shadow of a doubt that I'm ready.  I've been cranking Glee Christmas all day every day in my office, and I'm loving every minute of it! 

If you're looking for something to help get you in the spirit, or you need a new treat to take your neighbors for their gift this year, this Christmas Eggnog Bread is just the ticket.  I came across the recipe in a collection my sister-in-law has, so I'm not sure where it originated, but God bless the jolly baker who whipped up this treat for all of us to enjoy!


Christmas Eggnog Bread



Ingredients

1/4 c. butter, melted
3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/4 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 c. eggnog
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/2 c. chopped red cherries (I used craisins)


Directions

In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar & eggs; mix well.  Combine flour, powder & salt.  Stir into butter mixture alternately with eggnog, mix only until dry ingredients are moistened.  Fold in pecans & cherries.  Pour into a greased 8 x 4-inch loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes, or until bread tests done.
