Wrap it up for teachers

Give those hard-working teachers something homemade this year, all wrapped up in a pretty ribbon. Loaf cakes and quick breads fill the bill - most recipes make at least two loaves, and if you use smaller pans, you can stretch the recipe further. Below are some of my favorites.

What a great idea, I know our teachers would appreciate some homemade goodies for the holidays.

Those look great. Teachers must LOVE you! (My mom was a teacher and she got all kinds of weird gifts, but we loved it when she brought home homemade treats, because she wasn't much of a cook or a baker.)
