A lovely tea bread, rich with almonds and spiced with nutmeg and lemon.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8-inch by 4-inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Add the lemon zest and almonds and stir to combine. In another bowl, combine the egg, oil, and eggnog. Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients just until well blended. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
Bake for about 1 hour or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
