I gave a lot of mini loaves as gifts. I tried out three new recipes, and they all turned out to be winners.
Gingerbread at the Fresh Loaf. I love molasses and ginger, so I loved this one. Definitely grease the pans well and let the bread cool completely before removing from the pan, because it sticks. A lot.
Almond Poppy Seed Bread at Taste of Home. This was an improvement over the almond poppy seed recipe I usually use, because it is moister. It has a whole cup of oil, though. Next time I’ll try 1/2 cup oil, and 1/2 cup applesauce to make it healthier. This was also a sticky bread and I had to let it cool completely to get it out of the pans in one piece.
Amanda’s Banana Bread (by a different Amanda). Also very moist, which I like in a banana bread. Flavor was good. All banana bread tastes very similar to me, though. I have yet to meet a banana bread that knocks my socks off.
