eggnog chocolate chip bread

in Bread, Christmas, Recipes

2 posts in one day…I just can’t help it…there is so much stuff I want to share before Christmas…Ahhhh….

and I just HAD to get in an eggnog recipe…stat.

My hubby loves eggnog…me not so much…but when I started seeing all these fun recipes to use eggnog now you are talking…and this one in bread with chocolate chips…perfect.

This recipe has the perfect amount of eggnog flavor…not to much so you feel like you should just take a drink…but enough to get the NICE taste of eggnog….I really think for those of you that do not like eggnog you would still really like this bread…that is why I am so excited to post this recipe…everyone needs to have a little eggnog around Christmas :-)

And who doesn’t like a glaze on top of bread…with brown butter….well that is just added tastiness and goodness my friends.

eggnog chocolate chip bread


  • 2 1/8 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (melt and cool)
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 Large farm fresh eggs
  • 3/4 cups eggnog
  • 2/3 cups chocolate chips


  • 1/4 cup butter - Browned!
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons eggnog


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease your bread pan - I made mine in 3 small loaves.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until combined. Set aside.
In a large bowl - I used my kitchen aid mix cooled butter with sugar until smooth. Add in vanilla extract. Then blend in each egg one at a time until totally combined. Add half of the flour mixture, mix, then stir in the eggnog until smooth. Add remaining dry ingredients and stir until just combined and smooth. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour in the greased loaf pan(s). Bake for 50-55 minutes if using 1 large loaf 40-45 for small loaves. Let cool completely, then cover in glaze.
Glaze: make the browned butter... then whisk together brownie butter, sugar and eggnog, stirring well until combined. If it still doesn’t appear glaze-like, add in eggnog 1/2 tablespoon at a time and mix again. If it becomes too runny just add a little more powdered sugar...then drizzle glaze on bread . Serve and enjoy.

I enjoyed my bread with a morning cup of tea….ahhhh….lovely breakfast.

I agree with you, I’m not a huge fan of eggnog, but it seems to be in every baked good on Pinterest lately!! This looks like the perfect eggnog starter recipe, happy baking :)
