Number of Servings: 24


    2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1 1/4 cup prepared dairy eggnog or half-and-half
    6 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 cup chopped pecans
    1/2 cup coarsely chopped candied red cherries


1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease three 5 1/2 X 3-inch mini loaf pans.
2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and nutmeg in large bowl. Combine eggnog, melted butter, eggs and vanilla in medium bowl; stir until well blended. Add eggnog mixture to flour mixture. Mix just until ingredients are moistened. Stir in pecans and cherries. Spoon into prepared pans.
3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean. Cool in pans 15 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks. Store tighly wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature.
Makes 3 mini loaves.

Note: a loaf of homemade bread makes a great gift- especially when given in a new loaf pan. Just add a wooden spoon and the recipe, wrap it all up in a festive towel and tie it with a ribbon.
