Since you all love my bread recipes so much and it seems our friends and family do too when I gift loaves for the holidays, I thought I’d mix up a few new bread recipes for you this holiday season!

This bread is particularly beautiful. Latte Bread is based on my Sweet Bread Recipe. Integrating espresso powder not only gives it incredible flavor, but the prettiest hue – perfect for gifting.

Breads are a delicious treat for breakfast or brunch but can also be enjoyed for dessert! Like my other bread recipes, it’s moist and dense with a subtle espresso flavor. It can be enjoyed on it’s own, with a little slather of butter or even with a touch of sweet icing slightly warmed to brush on.

Any which way you slice it – coffee and latte lovers will love this easy Latte Bread! Believe me, I ate a latte of this bread. I couldn’t resist.

No yeast Latte Bread is so easy to make and with the exception of espresso powder, is made with staple ingredients including sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, eggs, milk, and oil.

It comes together in just a few minutes – simply combine wet ingredients, integrate dry, pour into loaf pans and bake! Wrapping them is even easier.

Espresso Bread Ingredients

  • Sugar
  • Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Espresso Powder – I use this espresso powder because it blends so seamlessly into recipes, but if you’re in a pinch with something easy to find in your grocery store, this espresso powder will do, too!
  • Eggs
  • Milk – Whatever you have on hand, skim, Vitamin D, even Almond Milk
  • Vegetable Oil – Can substitute melted butter or canola oil, if needed.

Variations

  • Nuts – Walnuts, pecans, almonds
  • Chocolate Chips – Semi-sweet, milk or dark chocolate
  • Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans
  • Glaze

How to Make Sweet Bread

  1. Combine dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine wet ingredients.
  3. Incorporate dry mixture into wet mixture until just combined and pour into greased loaf pans.
  4. Sprinkle sugar on top to make your Sweet Bread glisten and bake! It’s SO easy!

Variations

  • Don’t want 6 miniature loaves? 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 or until it passes the toothpick test.
  • If you prefer to make them into muffins, just grease miniature muffin tins and fill each to 2/3 full. Bake 12 minutes.
  • This bread is amazing on it’s own, but you can also cover it (or drizzle if you show any restraint) with Glaze or Cream Cheese Glaze
  • Swirl in nuts

Tips

Store

  • Room Temperature – Store quick bread in a sealed plastic bag or covered in saran wrap at room temperature for up to 5 days.
  • Freeze – To freeze loaves, wrap them tightly in heavy foil, saran wrap or place them in freezer bags (I like to do at least 2 to prevent freezer odors from seeping in), and freeze for up to 3 months. Bring to room temperature to serve.

How to Gift Wrap Bread

Miniature loaf pans (as shown) work beautifully for an easy, beautiful, housewarming gift, hostess gift and last minute Christmas gifts for teachers, neighbors and friends and you can even keep one for yourself!

I use a simple ribbon or cellophane bag for effortless gifting. I purchase these little loaf pans at Michael’s, but you can also purchase beautiful disposable kraft paper loaf pans here.

I have created free printable gift tags for subscribers that say “Wishing you a sweet Christmas”, “Sending you a latte love” and “Wishing you a latte joy”. You can get them here!
