Festive little loaves of quick breads or fruitcake
So I wrote it down in one of my handwritten cookbooks: "To make small nut breads from a recipe that makes a 9x5x3-inch loaf, you can use six 4x2x1 1/2-inch pans. Bake the little loaves for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean."
I just now realized that another place I should put this information is my Christmas notebook, the place where most of my kitchen gift recipes reside.
I thought I would share with you links to some of the good recipes I've used for gift loaves over the years.
Little Apricot Fruitcakes have been a favorite of many people.
Christmas Fruit Bread and Last Minute Fruitcakes, which use homemade candied cherries and pineapple, are other ideas. I will look on my other blog and see what else I can add.
And then there are fun ideas for packaging gift breads. Happy baking and gifting!
