5 bread recipes for fall + how to write on a loaf

Fall is always a time for our family to entertain. I love hosting dinners, feasts and parties – but sometimes even a simple breakfast can be just the right touch. I’ve recently begun experimenting with making breads and am so excited to share these five easy recipes that Athena created with you today. They are perfect to make for a morning brunch with a crowd (or a single friend) and will seriously change the way you celebrate this season.

Try one of the breads, or all five! If you’re making different loaves at one time they are simple to label, right on the loaf. And if you are wanting to impress guests at your party, or a gift recipient (everyone loves a gift of fresh baked bread), try stenciling the name of the bread right on the surface of the loaf. It is one of those small details that will make your presentation unique and special.

To write on a loaf of bread you will need – bread (try a recipe below, or a store purchased loaf), small dauber (found in stenciling section of arts and crafts store), letter stencils, and powdered sugar.

Use clean stencils and dauber as you will be applying on food. Decide what to spell on your bread and make sure it will fit the width of the bread (you can always go lengthwise as well). Breads with hard tops work best, but feel free to experiment. Position stencil of the first letter of word on surface of bread. Dab the dauber into powdered sugar and apply to the stencil, making sure you have covered it adequately. Remove stencil and voila, you’ve created your first letter. Continue this process until you’ve spelled out the desired word(s) on your loaf of bread.

Sweet potato bread is everything that is good about fall. It’s hearty and has a wonderful spice to it. Follow the easy recipe to make your own loaf.

Banana chocolate chip and walnut bread is a favorite in our house. It’s a a great treat that also packs a wonderful array of nutrition to start a day.

Cinnamon raisin bread was the first bread I ever attempted to make. Even if you have no experience, this bread is a great one to start with. Serve it with a french press of coffee in the morning and any overnight guest will be quite pleased.

The traditional loaf of fall, this pumpkin bread recipe will have you twirling in the leaves even before they begin to fall. I snuck my first, of many pieces this week (watch out thighs!).

Lemon Poppy Seed is a refreshing alternative to the normal weightiness of fall breads. It tastes great paired with a mimosa, and is a constant party pleaser no matter the season.

    I’ve got the banana bread in the oven now and I can’t wait to try it! I plan on also making the cinnamon raisin bread but I have a question about that….do I have to chill it overnight? I was hoping to make it today and I’m not sure if this step can be omitted it you’d like to make it sooner. Thanks!

    These all look delicious! I can’t wait to try them, but I have a question. What kind of flour do all of these breads use? Other than the Cinnamon Raisin bread, do they all use All-Purpose Flour, or Bread Flour, or something else? Thanks so much!

    I started with the Pumpkin Bread and it was a hit, I ended up making three loaves in two days. I tried the Cinnamon Raisin today and it was a complete flop. It was too salty and not sweet at all. Wondering if anyone else has had any issues or any suggestions.

    Hi Victoria,

    I tried making lemon poppy seed bread yesterday. It was a success although this is my first time baking a bread. The taste is so good and I’ve mention it in my website and link the recipe to here. The texture doesn’t seem to be a bread but more to cake, is this what it suppose to be?

    these all look wonderful. Great idea for a basket for the neighbors, with a couple of bowls of flavored butter!! I am thinking of making them into small loaves so that there’s more to pass around. One of each in a basket!! Thanks!

    The banana chocolate chip bread isn’t something I’ve made before and would like to try. I make cinnamon raisin in my bread maker and it’s sooo good.

    Does the sweet potato bread and Cinnamon raisin bread have to be refrigerated overnight? I am looking forward to adding this to my baking collection of recipes.

    Does the recipe for raisin bread have to be refrigerated overnight or can I bake it right away?
