I love baking during the winter because it not only warms up the house a bit, it smells fantastic too. One of my go-to baked goods is banana bread - when I bake a few loaves of my mother's recipe, the delicious banana-y scent reminds me of my childhood. Her recipe is so delicious, I eat it for both breakfast and dessert!
Not only do I make baked goods to eat myself, but they can be great gifts too! Just a few items from the kitchen (like bakers twine) and your baked goods can go from good to great!
Loaves: First wrap a baked bread loaf in plastic wrap. The plastic wrap keeps any crumbs from falling off and keeps the bread moist! Next, cut a piece or parchment paper the width of the loaf and long enough to completely wrap it. Lastly, tie with some bakers twine.
Plate of Muffins: Place muffins on a plate neatly, you don't want to crowd them! Then wrap the plate of baked goods with plastic wrap and tie off with bakers twine!
Individual Muffins: Take some care when wrapping individual muffins with plastic wrap, you don't want a wad of plastic wrap attached to your muffin because you used too much! For a fancy look, place plastic wrapped muffins in cupcake wrappers and then tie with bakers twine.
Do you take time to wrap your baked goods? What types of baked goods are your go-tos?
