Sweet Bread Recipe

I love a great sweet bread. It’s easy to eat for breakfast, a snack or dessert. It’s just as easy to make as it is to enjoy. Sweet bread takes just 5 minutes hands on time and requires just staple ingredients. I often make it when we’re having last minute guests for a playdate or as a quick hostess gift. You can adapt this simple sweet bread recipe with your favorite fruits, but it’s perfection on it’s own as well. I love to slather a little butter on it for good measure.

This time of year, Michael’s offers miniature ceramic loaf pans for just $1. I always stock up on them in white to use throughout the year. They are more durable than paper loaf pans and make a beautiful gift. This recipe yields 6 pretty little loaves, if you’re willing to share!
