Eggnog Cherry Nut Loaf

  I wanted to bake this bread from The Better Homes and Gardens All Time Favorite Bread Recipes when the commercial eggnog was out in the stores. We have both made quick breads calling for Maraschino Cherries before but this recipe is different in that it calls for dairy eggnog. It does give you the directions to make the egg nog if you wish, but it is really quick to make with the purchased nog. Quite a holiday bread. 
  It was fast to make, and quite tasty. Like all quick breads better the next day. 
Eggnog-Cherry Nut Loaf
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 beaten egg
1 ¼ cups dairy eggnog or Homemade eggnog 
1/3 cup cooking oil
½ cup chopped nuts
½ cup chopped maraschino cherries
  In mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In small bowl mix  beaten egg, eggnog and cooking oil. Stir into dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in the nuts and cherries.
  Turn into 2 greased 8x4x2 loaf pans. Bake in 350° oven for 45 to 50 minutes or till done. Cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove from pans and cool on wire rack.
  Homemade eggnog: Beat together 2 eggs, 1 cup light cream, ¼ cup sugar, and ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg. Makes 1 ¼ cups.
