    I love baking breads because they make a delicious treat or beautiful gift in just a few minutes. This almond bread is an adaptation of my ever popular sweet bread recipe. It’s so moist and dense with a subtle almond flavor. It tastes incredible on it’s own or with a little slather of butter.

    Almond Bread is like a slice of cake – only better because it’s so dense and is so flavorful you don’t need or want icing! It makes a delicious breakfast treat, snack or dessert.

    Why Does Bread Crack When it Bakes?

    It’s not you – it’s incredibly moist bread! The “crust” bakes first while the inside is still rising. It cracks to allow it to continue to rise.

    As you know, I love sharing breads. They make beautiful hostess, teacher, neighbor and coworker gifts! This recipe yields 6 mini loaves, which leaves you plenty to share and enjoy, too! You can purchase miniature ceramic loaf pans like I use or bake them in paper loaf pans.

    You can also make this in 2 – 1 pound loaf pans or cut the recipe in half for just 1 loaf pan and bake 50 minutes. This is perfect for feeding a crowd on Christmas morning!

    Wrap your loaf pan by placing it in a cellophane bag or simply wrap it with a ribbon and add a stem of fresh greens to garnish for Christmas. Are you on the list? Subscribers receive access to my free printable library that includes “Wishing you a sweet Christmas” gift tags. You can join here!
