Egg Nog Mini Loaves

Egg Nog is one of those foods that signal the beginning of the holiday season. I usually buy a few cartons during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and typically have some extra—which is great, because it gives me an excuse to bake some egg nog goodies! Like these Egg Nog Mini Loaves, for example.

These little loaves are moist, slightly sweet, and have a mild egg nog flavor, so even those who aren’t crazy about egg nog may like them. The loaves rise really nicely, too. (Note: I also tried making this recipe as a 9 x 5″ loaf, but since it sunk a little in the middle, I think it works best for mini loaves, and probably muffins, too).

If you’d like to sweeten these loaves up a little more, sprinkle on a dusting of powdered sugar after they’ve cooled or add an egg nog glaze on top (try the glaze that I used on these Egg Nog Muffins).

EGG NOG MINI LOAVES by NancyC

Makes three 5 x 3″ mini loaves

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup egg nog
  • 1/3 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons rum extract
  • Optional: Egg Nog Glaze

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease and flour three 5 x 3″ mini loaf pans; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

In medium bowl, beat eggs, egg nog, yogurt, sugar, butter, and vanilla and rum extracts, blending well. Add this mixture to dry ingredients, stirring just enough to moisten.

Pour into prepared mini loaf pans. Bake at 350˚F for 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (I baked mine for 32 minutes).

Cool loaves for 10 minutes in pans, then remove to wire rack to cool completely. If desired, glaze with Egg Nog Glaze (click here for the recipe–I’ve used it before on some egg nog muffins).

During the holidays, these Egg Nog Mini Loaves are the perfect treat with some coffee or tea. Have you baked anything with egg nog before?

    Yum! Great use for the last of the egg nog in the fridge, Nancy. Love the use of Greek yogurt, too. Looks like it’s time to pull out my mini-loaf pans again. 🙂
    Happy New Year!!

      Yes, the Greek yogurt makes these nice and moist! I almost wish Egg Nog were available a little longer so I could make more recipes with it! 🙂 Have a safe and happy new year, Nancy!
