Mini Loaf Pan

For Christmas this year, my daughter-in-law Kim gave me this handy dandy pan by Wilton The pan is an advance 4-cavity Mini Loaf Pan. Each cavity measures 5.75 W x 3″L x 2.125″ D. That means you can make 4 loaves of mini sourdough zucchini bread at once. The small loaves are perfect for holiday gift giving or you can enjoy one loaf of bread and freeze the rest for later. That way you’ll always have a few loaves of bread stored in the freezer for when unexpected guests stop by or you just want a slice of  quick bread, which ever comes first.
