Eggnog Loaf

We had extra eggnog left after Christmas.  I found this recipe and it looked interesting.

1/4 c melted marg or butter
3/4 c sugar
2 beaten eggs
2 1/4 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 c chopped pecans
1/2 c raisins
1/2 c mixed
candied fruit1 c eggnog

Combine the dry ingredients with the nuts, raisins and candied fruit.

Stir together to coat the fruit and nuts.

Mix together butter and sugar.

Beat eggs into the mixture.

Stir in about 1/3 of the eggnog.

Add about half of the dry mixture and stir just until moistened.

Add another 1/3 of the eggnog, and stir, then mix in the remaining dry ingredients.

Finally, stir in the last of the eggnog.  You don't want to stir loaves and quick bread too much or they become tough.

Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan.

This recipe makes two full sized loaves.

Bake at 350F for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove it from the pan and cool completely before slicing.

I found the loaf very tasty with the mixed fruit and nuts.  You can taste the flavour of the eggnog.  It has a Christmasy taste and look to it.  Enjoy!  ;)
