I love to give loaves of quick bread as gifts. They’re so easy to make and so obviously homemade, it’s really a perfect combination! I always tie a band around my loaves and I always gift them swaddled in a beautiful napkin or tea towel for the recipient to keep!


Watch my video to see how easy it is to wrap up your gift loaf!

Let's Make A Pistachio Bread Gift!

Pistachio Bread <3 Sweet Paul Holiday Countdown <3 I love to give loaves of quick bread as gifts. They’re so easy to make and so obviously homemade, it’s really a perfect combination! I always tie a band around my loaves with a bit of ribbon and some greenery and I always gift them swaddled in a beautiful napkin or tea towel for the recipient to keep!Here’s my recipe for the perfect not-too-sweet pistachio loaf:1 cup ground pistachio kernels½ cup butter⅔ cup sugar2 large eggs½ teaspoon vanilla extract½ teaspoon salt1 tablespoon baking powder1¾ cups all purpose flourPreheat oven to 350°F. Grind pistachios in a blender or food processor. (I like mine a little chunky still!) Cream together butter, sugar, and pistachios in a stand mixer for 2–3 minutes. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix on low until incorporated. Measure out and mix up your dry ingredients in a bowl. Turn mixer on low and pour in dry ingredients a little bit at a time. Mix on high for about 30 seconds. Butter a large loaf pan. Pour batter into pan and bake for 40–50 minutes until golden and baked through.
