We are trying to make the best of winter, which for us means burning our favorite candles, avoiding the outdoors at all costs, and baking all kinds of goodies to not only warm up the house a little bit, but nothing says winter quite like your space smelling of baked goods. One thing we love to whip is, well, we just call them loaves; shaped like bread, but taste more like cake. Regardless, these delectable loaves are great to have around for an after-dinner treat, or for something a little different with your coffee or tea in the morning. We’ve rounded up a few of our absolute favorite recipes to share with you today, so happy baking! (Spring is coming, hang in there!)
Triple Chocolate Loaf
We are major chocaholics so the idea of having this around for any time we have a hankering for a little something sweet is utter perfection. This dessert loaf is thick, fudgy, moist, and RICH. If you’re a coffee drinker, this loaf pairs beautifully with espresso, you can thank us later! Get the full recipe here.
Chai Apple Bread
Here is a recipe for our spice lovers! Fill your home with the aroma of chai and apple spice, and later fill your mouth with it! We love to be a little extra and make a crunchy crumble topping to go on this loaf, and just like the recipe tells us to do, we love to pair this with a fresh cup of coffee with a splash of pumpkin creamer. This is a great anytime loaf, but definitely keep this in mind for one of those perfect fall days where you can crack the windows and let the crisp fall air in! Get the full recipe here!
Coconut Loaf Cake
Loaf cake, see? It’s a loaf and cake. Anyway, if you like Pina Coladas, you’ll love this loaf cake! Just think of the sweetest, thickest coconut cake topped off with a 3-ingredient coconut glaze. We enjoy this coconut loaf year-round, but if you’re ever wondering what to whip up for a spring gathering, you no longer have to wonder! Get the full recipe here.
Coffee and Walnut Loaf
Not only are these flavors just, *chef’s kiss* incredible, but this is a super clean recipe that is egg-less, dairy-free, and totally vegan. So yes you can eat the whole loaf in one sitting. It’s called clean eating. Okay, probably not, but if you love the bold flavor of coffee, you’ll absolutely melt over this recipe. Oh and the best part? Definitely the sweet espresso icing! Go ahead, lick the bowl. Get the full recipe here.
