Christmas Gift Idea | Easy Cinnamon Bread

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!

If you’re not gifting them and want to make a larger, messier loaf, you’ll love my Cinnamon Roll Bread recipe as well! I also have a variety of giftable breads like Sweet Orange, Sweet Bread and Cranberry Bread. Enjoy!
