Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare two 8”x4” loaf pans or one 9”x5” loaf pan by spraying with cooking spray and sprinkling inside with flour.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs and butter. Beat in the sugar, extracts and eggnog.
  3. Combine 2-1/2 cups flour, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice; gradually add to egg mixture. Add the fruit and stir into batter. Fold in walnuts.
  4. Pour into the prepared loaf pan(s). Bake at 350° for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. While the bread bakes, prepare the glaze by mixing together the eggnog and almond extract with a fork in a small bowl. Add powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached.
  6. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Drizzle with eggnog glaze if using.
