7 Great Christmas Breads: Loaves of Love

Freshly baked bread is welcome no matter what time of year it is (who can resist that aroma?), but around the holidays, bread takes on special meaning. Whether you’re hosting a casual afternoon coffee or a grand dinner, homemade Christmas bread can elevate the occasion.


Try toasting traditional German stollen and slathering it with sweet-cream butter and jam, or give the kids cups of steaming hot cocoa and a thick slice of two-tone banana bread after a day of sledding. Or how about a cinnamon roll on Christmas morning, still warm from the oven and packed with nuts and raisins?


Giving one of these sweet loaves as a gift, wrapped in festive paper and tied with a pretty bow, is also a sure way to share the love. It doesn’t get any more elemental than literally breaking bread with the people you care about.
