  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp rum (or 1 - 2 tsp of rum extract)


  • 1 cup powdered sugar whisked until no clumps remain
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp rum or rum extract
  • 2 - 4 Tbsp eggnog (depending on how thick or thin you want the glaze to be)


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Line a 9x5" loaf pan with parchment paper, or spray with baking spray (this is the one I use). Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg), and whisk to combine.
  • In a separate, larger mixing bowl, add eggs and whisk. Whisk in sugar, then vegetable oil, melted butter, eggnog, vanilla extract and rum.
  • Add dry ingredients to eggnong mixture, using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to stir until JUST combined.
  • Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-65 minutes, until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs.
  • Let cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire cooling rack to cool completely.


  • While loaf is cooling, make the glaze by combining powdered sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small mixing bowl. Whisk to remove any lumps from the powdered sugar.
  • Whisk in the rum and eggnog, adding the eggnog 1 Tbsp at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
  • Drizzle over cooled bread and serve.


Recipe makes 1 regular loaf of quick bread, or 3 mini loaves.
