Mini-loaves in cans
If you'd like to make mini loaves of bread but don't have tiny bread pans, never fear! Save the cans that house the sliced peaches, green beans, or cream of chicken soup you served for dinner. Wash and dry them thoroughly. Coat them with non-stick spray before filling 1/2 to 2/3 full of batter. Bake at 350-degrees for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick, inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes before sliding bread onto a rack to finish cooling. Wrap the mini-round loaves in plastic wrap leaving extra wrap on the ends to tie up with curly ribbon for a festive gift. If you have extra batter after filling your cans, make muffins. Grease the tins and fill cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350-degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until test done.
