Beth is a homemaker and professional author. She lives with her family close to the scenic Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee.

This recipe is a variant on traditional bread pudding as it uses eggnog and rum instead of scalded milk. It is also a family favorite in my household, and is especially enjoyed around the Thanksgiving and Yule seasons.

    Kari Poulsen, I don't think so (of course, I use alcohols often to flavor foods, so may be more used to them than other folks). However, your daughter may prefer it without the rum or brandy. For this I would suggest to double (almost, not quite) the molasses and add just a bit more liquid extract.

    Can you taste the alcohol very much. This would be perfect for my daughter. She loves eggnog. She just doesn't like alcohol. :)
