3/4 cup eggnog or half-and-half (increase to 1 cup)
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons instant coffee granules or crystals

Latte Glaze Ingredients

1 teaspoon instant coffee granules or crystals
1 tablespoon hot water

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans with shortening or cooking spray; lightly flour.

In large bowl, beat all bread ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed about 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly, until blended. Beat on high speed 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.

Dissolve instant coffee in hot water. In small bowl, mix coffee, powdered sugar and butter until smooth. If necessary, stir in a few drops of hot water until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle glaze over loaf.
