  • An easy bread recipe without yeast that takes just 5 minutes hands on time!

    easy bread for brunch

    We’re big fans of sweet bread, especially on Saturday mornings. It’s easy enough for the girls to help make {and foolproof, too} and requires only a few staple ingredients for an impromptu breakfast.

    We make sweet bread in a variety of ways to mix it up a bit. Some favorites include Funfetti Bread, Cinnamon Bread and Sweet Orange Bread.

    sprinkles in bread

    But sometimes you just need to add sprinkles. Pretty sugar crystals give this bread a little crunch, you know, the kind you love when you’re biting into a frosted sugar cookie topped with them.

    The sugar crystals add a little fun flair and color, too.

    I almost always make this easy bread recipe in mini loaf pans, but you can make it in 2 1 lb loaf pans and increase baking time to 50-60 minutes using the toothpick test.

    I purchase mini loaf pans at Michael’s for just $1 each. If you don’t have access to one, you can purchase them online here {affiliate link}, but they sadly are more expensive. They hold better than disposable cardboard options and are reusable. I also love that I can usually find them in seasonal colors, white and cream.

    As I mentioned before, this easy bread recipe makes 2 large loaves – enough to feed a crowd. You can split the recipe, but life is sweeter when shared, which is why I make mini loaves! They’re perfect for gifting to friends and neighbors.
