I LOVE vanilla and especially vanilla beans. I love the smell of vanilla bean on my hands after I’ve taken the vanilla seeds out to bake with it.

Lately, I’ve been craving vanilla bean anything (partly because I wanted to smell a fresh vanilla bean) since it was so long since I’ve made any recipes with it. It’s been even longer since I’ve posted recipes with vanilla beans. I actually only remember posting one recipes and it, Vanilla Bean Cheesecake. That just won’t do…I’ve got to give you more recipes using vanilla beans!

I’m starting with this incredible delicious eggnog bread! My husband looks forward to the holiday season for the presents and the eggnog. The man seriously loves eggnog so I got him some. I have never tried straight eggnog and I don’t think that I will. I do like the flavor in baked goods but I just can’t get my head around the raw egg part in a drink. So even though I don’t drink it myself, I like baking with it. Eggnog pancakes and waffles rock too!

Putting eggnog and vanilla bean together was a heavenly combination! I save my beans for special recipes and this holiday bread was well worth the beans. The little guy stole two pieces of bread while I was taking pictures and ate them right away. It’s delicious by itself but I found that served warm with ice  cream was simply perfect!

  1. Sure was tasty, even alone!

  2. oh… yes please! I absolutely love eggnog so the idea of putting it in bread serving it warm with some vanilla bean ice cream, yeah, basically amazing! I love rodelle products too, use their dutch process cocoa powder! :)

  3. Lyuba, this looks absolutely amazing! I cannot wait to make this for the holidays. Thanks for the great recipe!

  4. Yum! I can smell it now!! I also love the smell of vanilla. Once I scrape the beans out of the pod I put the pod in my sugar canister. The sugar gets a lovely vanilla taste and every time I open the lid I can smell the fragrance. Um um good.

    • I do that too!! If I’m not steeping the bean in milk, I usually put it in sugar afterwards :)
      Thank you for a sweet comment!
