Three Loaves in One

 Three Loaves in One
Three Loaves in One from our Test Kitchen is just that. It lets you make three mini quick breads-blueberry, zucchini and cinnamon-with one basic batter. You simply mix up the batter, divide it among three small loaf pans and add the flavor ingredients. You can enjoy one bread today and freeze the other two for another meal…or whenever you crave a healthy snack.
