Berry Mini Breads

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling


4 loaves

A package containing this buttery, sweet-tart bread and its recipe was dropped at our doorstep one evening during the holidays. It was so tasty that it became a tradition at our house. Now we also leave the same gift on many doorsteps throughout the Christmas season. —Heidi Naylor, Boise, Idaho

    This recipe is very good. I make it often. My only complaint is that it takes much longer to bake than the recipe says. It often takes 45-50 minutes to bake for me.

    I have been using Taste of Home recipes forever. A first ... this recipe made a complete mess in my oven. I used the correct size pans noted in recipe but way too much batter!Please edit this recipe to the correct pan sizes required!
