This is one of the most scrumptious cinnamon bread recipes that I’ve ever come across and it’s super easy to make. I like to make up a bunch of loaves and wrap them in holiday paper. I’ll then tie some ribbons around them and take them to different people in my neighborhood. Giving food as a gift is a wonderful idea that many people enjoy. One year, I made this bread and took it to my local nursing home to give to the residents.
Do you enjoy giving treats as gifts?
