Quick bread in a bottle
Friendship bread: give a gift of home cooking that's also fun to make
Cool weather puts us in the mood to bake. So why not give a friend a head start? Layer the dry ingredients from step 1 (below) for this easy quick bread into a milk bottle or 1-quart mason jar. To fit, tamp each layer well (with chips and nuts on top). Then all that’s left is to add the wet ingredients and bake.
We used craft paper adhered with double-stick tape to cover the original milk bottle graphics and the lid.
Add a label on the back of the bottle for the recipe instructions. The mix keeps for two to three months at room temperature.
