  • When using a 5x3x2 loaf pan, bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until done.

Bake Bread in Loaf Pans

When you bake bread in loaf pans they are so much easier to make several at one time which, saves you time and money. Small loaf pans are best for making sweet cake treats for giving as gift ideas to others.

Finding just the right loaf pans is not difficult today. However, you do want something that will last a long time, while helping you produce some mouthwatering bread recipes. You can find them in sets of two or more as well as in specialty themes such as this lovely ceramic recipe loaf pan featuring a banana bread recipe inside the pan. I like the way it looks and, I think it will make a wonderful gift idea as well.

Sweet Bread Ready-to-Go

When you are in a hurry, do not have the ingredients, means or inclination for baking bread, you can always shop for it as sweet bread ready-to-go. There are various types and flavors of breads from which you may choose to eat at home or give as gift ideas. For instance, Beckeys banana nut bread comes in a 1 pound loaf that looks delicious and oh so nutty.

The Scent of Banana Nut Bread

The scent of banana nut bread can bring a smile to the face, a lick to the lip as well fond memories. It can bring back memories of visiting grandparents. It can also cheer you up, or even make you hungrier for such a delicious sweet bread. I love scented candles. I think this banana nut bread scented candle is a great idea. It will also make a sweet gift idea.

    Banana bread is great. The thing I find (whenever I buy it) is it is made with walnuts and I always get some lousy tasting walnut. I think pecans would be wonderful in it. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Take good care, Rose
