Holiday Eggnog Bread

4 3/4 c. all purpose flour
3/4 c. sugar
4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. ground nutmeg
2 beaten eggs
2 3/4 c. eggnog
1/2 c. cooking oil
3/4 c. chopped pecans
3/4 c. snipped dried apricots ( or cranberries???)

2/3 c. sifted powdered sugar
2-3 t. eggnog

Stir together : flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and 1/2 t. salt in a large mixing bowl. Combine eggs, eggnog and oil; add to flour mixture, stirring just until combined. Stir in pecans and dried fruit. Pour into two greased 8x4x2 loaf pans.
Bake : 350 oven 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. (Cover with foil after 40 minutes id bread browns too quickly.) Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool on racks. Wrap, store overnight in fridge.

Stir together the powdered sugar and 2 - 3 teaspoons of eggnog to make an icing of drizzling consistancy. Drizzle over the bread. Makes 2 loaves.
