I find inspiration virtually everywhere. When I was shopping at Michael’s for something for Adalyn, I came across ceramic loaf pans for just $1 and knew they would be great for gifting my cinnamon bread. They had the perfect shade of red and green and a great standard, white!
These adorable little loaves make great neighbor and teacher gifts – as well as breakfast for yourself. Enjoy alone or with a little butter. You definitely want to save a loaf for yourself!
I wrapped some of the loaves with parchment paper, baker’s twine and garnished with cinnamon sticks and others with ribbon. A batch yields 6 mini-loaves, that’s a lot of happy friends! Because these are packaged within themselves, be sure to wipe the top of the baking dish with a wet paper towel to eliminate any residue from cooking spray. I love that I can make 6 gifts in just 10 minutes or easily double the batch for more!
