Eggnog Bread with Boozy Maple Glaze (gluten free)

Eggnog Bread with Boozy Maple Glaze (gluten free) | #glutenfree

This bread almost didn’t get baked. I was so keen on the vegan eggnog I showed you yesterday that I could barely fathom the idea of using it for anything other than sipping on.

But I remembered what they taught me in finance school about diversifying my portfolio and not putting all my eggnog in one basket, so I heeded the advice of my elders, re-allocated my assets, and my return on investment was muy fantástico.

This eggnog bread is luscious, so very gluten free, full of all natural ingredients, naturally sweetened, and it has the most pleasant eggnog flavor and silky texture. And then there’s the boozehound glaze. The glaze is nothing more than coconut milk, pure maple syrup, brandy, and nutmeg. It smells so good, you’ll want to wear it like perfume.

This bread is not vegan, but if you would like to make it vegan, you can work your flax egg magic. You can be a Samurai.

This bread. This nog-forsaken bread in all its boozy glazed-up splendor. It’s the best loaf I’ve ever made. It trumps loaves big and small. Unspeakable things were done to this bread.

There are times you look at yourself in the mirror, and you’re all, “daaaamn, I look good.” That happens immediately after you bake this bread.

For the Gluten Free Eggnog Bread:

For the Boozy Maple Glaze


To Bake the Bread:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly oil a 8.5” loaf pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the first 5 (wet) ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the remaining 7 (dry) ingredients.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet and stir until combined.
  5. Pour the batter into the oiled bread pan.
  6. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until the bread tests clean (I baked for 45 minutes, turned the oven off, and left the bread in the hot oven for an additional 5 minutes).
  7. Allow the bread to cool at least 30 minutes. Run a knife between the bread and the loaf pan, turn the loaf pan upside-down onto a cutting board to release the bread.

To Prepare the Glaze:

  1. While the bread is baking, add all ingredients of the glaze to a medium-sized skillet and bring it to a full boil.
  2. Allow the glaze to boil at a medium boil-rate (not too gentle, but not out of control), stirring consistently, until the glaze has thickened and has turned slightly brown/tan, about 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the skillet from the heat and allow it to sit at room temperature until ready for use.
  4. Pour the glaze over the cooled eggnog bread and serve thick slices. With booze.

    Oh, yes, please. Not sure why you didn’t spoon all of the glaze into your mouth before it hit the bread, and I’m not sure it would end up on the bread around these parts. Also, can I say, finance makes me {shudder}? i’m pretty sure that my food science classes were more interesting than fiance classes. Of course, there is that stupid job market thing, but whatever.

      It’s like you know me or something! I’d pour a little of the glaze, and then I’d spoon a little in my mouth…pour, then spoon. Half of it ended up directly in my face before it reached the bread. It should henceforth be known as Miracle Glaze. Glazes this good don’t exist.

      Can you imagine me in a classroom for 6 years (undergrad and grad) with a bunch of stuffy people? I’d look around the room regularly and think to myself, “why aren’t we all snowboarding right now? Who cares about the LIBOR?” Anyway, I actually do think finance is interesting, but it’s a good thing for the American investor I didn’t make a career in it 😉

            I would need a LOT of this glaze to survive 6 years of finance. I barely lived through one year of high school calc. Numbers give me a headache. Unless, of course, it is “how many spoons of boozy glaze does it take to get stephie drunk?”

    Wow. I believe everything you said about this bread and it’s making me wish I could eat a piece right now.

    I’m not sure I would be able to avoid drinking all of the eggnog before getting around to this but I’m definitely going to have to try it. Especially because there isn’t any added sugar. Awesome recipe!

    Ohhhhhh…. SO glad that you put some of your vegan eggnog into this bread. It looks absolutely, positively divine. I am definitely going to make this, complete with the boozy glaze (though I should probably make double of that as half is sure to end up in my mouth, just to make sure it ‘tastes right’, of course!) x
