Every year, I like to bake breads during the holiday season. This Cinnamon Cranberry bread quick recipe is amazing! The heat from the oven warms the house and the smell of this bread makes it feel like the holidays. Mostly, I love share this quick bread with friends. It comes together quick, moist, and with a good hard outside easy for slicing.
If you want to get a bit more creative just make some cinnamon butter or homemade jams or jellies to share with the loaf in decorated mason jars. If you do not have time to decor the jars just add a themed cupcake wrapper between the seal and lid. To decorate the bread just wrap with parchment paper and yarn, ribbon, or baker’s twine. Red or green twine is perfect to match the holiday spirit.
Using decorative mini loaf pans can make this bread easier to gift. Put them in a basket with a simple new kitchen cloth themed for the holidays. Another great way to gift them is to add them to a basket of home baked goodies. I usually make these goodies for my friends as I love to add to their recipe collection. I use Pumpkin Beans recipes cards to add my recipe to the basket or even share at baking parties.
What’s your favorite quick bread? One of my favorites is banana bread with no nuts. I can double the bananas and share at any time of the year. It’s a great gift to the neighbors or for housewarming gifts.
Let me know how you decorate up your home baked goodies to share at the holiday season. I love Pinterest links as well. It helps me find new boards and people to follow I have a board for homemade gifts which I love to pin all types of goodies too!
