    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!

    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!

    Homemade Christmas gift idea with easy cinnamon bread recipe
    Wrap 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!
