Eggnogg Mini Loaves

Now, I am not a eggnogg fan, but these loaves are really a great way to use up any leftovers you may have around the house. The eggnogg gives a kick of spice to the bread, and I find it much more enjoyable to eat as a bread, than as a drink ! I stuck to the recipe, since I was making them to  give a way as gifts. If I were to make them for Jamie and I, I would change the flour to white whole wheat and substitute the sugar for honey! When they were cooled I stuck them in cute little parchment paper gift bags so they’d be all ready for delivery 🙂 The nutrition information at the bottom is from the original recipe, which you can find here
