Eggnog Cake with Peanut Brittle-Gingersnap Streusel and Eggnog Glaze
All things Christmas in one perfect mini loaf! I made mini loaves as neighbor gifts this year and they worked great! You could easily make this in a loaf pan or even a bundt pan as a dessert or Christmas morning breakfast. I know I always say these recipes are easy, but seriously... this one is EASY.
Ingredients for Bread
3/4C Granulated Sugar
1/2C Butter melted and cooled
2t Baking powder
2t pumpkin pie spice
1. Whisk together the flour, baking soda salt and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside
2. In a large mixer combine the eggs, sugar, butter, eggnog, and vanilla.
3. Add the dry ingredients to the eggnog mixture in 3 parts and stir until just combined. Pour the batter into greased mini loaf pans ( or full sized pan) and top with a hefty amount of streusel on top. Use ALL of it!
* you could double the streusel recipe and add a layer into the batter as well for even more flavor!*
4. Bake at (350F) for about 20 minutes for mini loafs and 40 for full sized or until golden brown and the bread "bounces back" when pressed lightly with a finger.
5. Let cool completely and drizzle with eggnog glaze.
