I found these adorable little tiny paper loaf pans at that same store in SLC, “Gygis”, where I found the candy mold. That place is heaven for people who love all things food like me! There is a coffee cake that I make which is very cinnamony so I thought I’d make some tiny loaves of cinnamon bread for Cort’s shower. I found this recipe on a blog called “Lemon Drop”. The house smelled so heavenly while these little guys were baking, it was awesome! I haven’t tried one yet so I can’t tell you how they taste but I bet it’s great! This recipe made 24 mini loaves.
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chunky applesauce (I used smooth)
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons oil
1 Preheat oven to 350.
2 Spray large loaf pan with baking spray (the kind with flour).
3 In large bowl, whisk together first 4 ingredients.
4 In medium bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients.
5 Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients, blending just until combined.
6 Pour into loaf pan and smooth top.
7 Bake 55 – 60 minutes or until toothpicks inserted in center comes out clean. (My minis only took about 15 – 20 minutes to bake.)
To finish these off, I mixed together powdered sugar and milk until I got a thick glaze then I poured it into a ziploc bag, snipped off a corner and then piped a curvy line on the top of each loaf to pretty it up!)
