One of my favorite parts of Christmas is all of the holiday baking!

Baking with eggnog is one of my favorite holiday traditions and I love to make Eggnog Muffins.

Eggnog is one of those controversial Christmas drinks that you either love or hate – there usually isn’t an in between.

But add eggnog to a delicious cranberry bread and drizzle it with white chocolate? Yum!

If you love white chocolate, be sure to make these white chocolate peanut butter balls too!

How to make white chocolate cranberry Eggnog bread

First, cream together olive oil, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, orange zest, and eggnog.

In another bowl, whisk together salt, baking soda and flour.

Add dry mixture to the wet, beating well until combined, then fold in the fresh cranberries.

Grease a loaf pan with cooking spray and pour in the batter.

Sprinkle with brown sugar and garnish with additional cranberries on the top of the loaf.

Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean

Remove the bread from the pan and place on a cooling rack and cool for 15-20 minutes

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or until smooth

Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the bread.

Store bread in the fridge and serve chilled (it’s also delicious hot, but i prefer the flavor chilled as the white chocolate hardens and it tastes incredible!)

Rest assured all you eggnog haters, I promise you’ll love this recipe!

Everyone who has tried this bread has RAVED about it – it doesn’t taste like eggnog, so even those not crazy about it will love this recipe.

After I made my Cranberry Cream Cheese Muffins, I became obsessed with baking with fresh cranberries.

That huge pop of flavor is just so festive and full of flavor!

As you can tell from my recent barrage of cranberry inspired recipes, I am feeling festive my friends.

Here are some of my favorite holiday recipes using fresh cranberries!

Cranberries are perfect for Christmas baking.

I rarely ate them growing up, and I am more than making up for it now!

I decided to create this white chocolate cranberry eggnog bread with some leftover cranberries that I had in my fridge.

It has since become a Christmas staple that I have to bake every year!

This bread is insanely moist and delicious, and topped with crunchy baked brown sugar then drizzled with white chocolate after it finishes baking.

This is a showstopper recipe that is not only gorgeous to look at, but surprisingly easy to make.

It’s ready for the oven super fast and doesn’t require many ingredients.

Orange zest is a MUST in this recipe and adds so much flavor (so don’t leave it out!)

I really can’t get enough of this and could eat a whole loaf myself if I didn’t stop myself.

This would make a great gift for loved ones, or the perfect dessert to bring to a Christmas party.

  1. I made this twice this week, for gifts and for me. It comes together very quickly and is moist and yummy. I made small loaves, baked 30 minutes, and a large one. To up the eggnog flavor I added nutmeg and cinnamon. I chopped the cranberries a bit with my Vidalia chopper, which made easy work of it and distributed the berries well. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

  2. I’ll give it to you- I think crack bread is probably the most fitting description here. This sounds SO good, LOVE the cranberry and eggnog combo!
