Eggnog Quick Bread with Crumb Topping - a moist and delicious quick bread recipe perfect for the holidays!

We have a yeast based recipe for Cranberry Eggnog Bread that we absolutely love. But I’ve been trying for several years to find a recipe for a quick eggnog bread. They were either too sweet, or too bland, or too dry. . .

Recipe for moist and flavorful eggnog quick bread. The crumb topping makes this bread extra tasty. A perfect holiday quick bread recipe!

After many attempts, I finally came up with a winner! This eggnog bread is nice and moist thanks to the addition of pudding mix. It gets a boost of flavor from both rum extract and nutmeg. So yummy!

I adapted the recipe from one I found at Lil Luna. Kristyn used glaze on her bread, but we preferred the crumb topping. I love that it adds a nice buttery crunch.

I like baking most of my quick breads in these mini loaf pans. They don’t take as long to bake, so the middle gets done before the crust gets too browned. Plus they are tiny and cute and the perfect size for putting in cellophane bags to share with friends.

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try, it is perfect for holiday baking!
