I found Christen C's recipe on the Taste of Home site. I did make a few small changes. Since I always have chia on hand I substituted that for the flax. I also used Greek yogurt instead of the regular. My rum of choice was Bacardi Black.
For the rum drizzle I went slightly heavier, a tablespoon or two, with the powdered sugar to make it a bit thicker. It's absolutely delicious and would be awesome on things like pumpkin cake or eggnog baked donuts.
To make this even more decadent you could hold the glaze and use the bread as a base for french toast. Then top it with the glaze. I'd planned to do that but the bread didn't last long enough, next time I'll double the recipe.
