November 17th is National Homemade Bread Day. So, I thought I’d share with you some of my very favorite holiday bread recipes. These are all quick breads – meaning they don’t require yeast or hours of waiting for dough to proof. In every instance, the batters can be used to make mini-loaves (or even muffins) to give out a gifts.
Every bread here has been tested by me personally. If you click through to see a recipe, please be sure to read the notes so you know exactly what to expect. Happy holiday baking!
Apple Bread - This quick bread is exceedingly moist. I suggest drizzling each loaf with vanilla icing for added beauty and to bring out the sweetness of the apple.
Carrot Cake Breakfast Bread – If you’ve ever wanted to indulge by eating carrot cake for breakfast, this is the bread for you. Top with cream cheese icing for the ultimate carrot cake breakfast experience.
Easy Banana Bread – You won’t believe how easy this bread is to make. Chopped walnuts are optional but recommended.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread – If you held a bread knife to my neck and made me choose my favorite bread on this page, it would be this one. The combination of pumpkin and chocolate is a perfect holiday treat.
Pineapple Bread – Did you ever wish you had a Hawaiian grandma to bake you holiday bread? Close your eyes and take a bite of this bread. It’s the next best thing.
