These are my oldest sons favorite! These freeze really well and can be pulled out thawed to room temp and enjoyed for breakfast on the go or for unexpected company. A holiday favorite! * Cranberry Orange is second from right. Also pictured Lemon Poppyseed, Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread, and Eggnog Bread for which I have also listed the recipes here on JAP.
