"This recipe is similar to another recipe I just entered for an eggnog/cranberry tube cake. It's all about eggnog & cranberries for me this holiday season. Taste of Home appears to feel the same way & provided the eggnog part of the recipe, to which I added dried cranberries as an optional ingredient. I will make both recipes, but this recipe credited to Beverly Elmore of Spokane, MI appealed to me because it's 3 mini-loaves yield was ideal for my food gifts. Time does not include cooling time. ENJOY!"

In a lrg bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon & nutmeg.
In a 2nd bowl, beat the eggs, eggnog, sugar, butter & extracts. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in cranberries, if using.
Pour into 3 greased 5-3/4-in x 3-in x 2-in loaf pans. Bake at 350F for 30-35 min or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 min B4 removing from pans to wire racks - Or leave in pans if giving & wrapping as food gifts. Your choice.
RE DRIED CRANBERRIES: I prefer using my kitchen scissors to cut the larger cranberries into smaller pieces. I also prefer plumping them in water & pressing them nearly dry B4 I fold them into a batter. If you use them, select your own choice of method.
