    How to Gift Christmas Bread

    I find inspiration virtually everywhere and when I was shopping at Michael’s for something for Adalyn, I came across ceramic loaf pans for just $1. They’re perfect for gifting my cinnamon bread – the quintessential Christmas bread.  Year after year they offer shades of red and green and a great standard, white! You can also now find white year round. It makes perfectly delicious little giftable loaves every time!

    Wrap the loaves with parchment paper, baker’s twine or ribbon and garnish with cinnamon sticks.  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!
