I love it! Thanks for sharing. I posted a link on edible crafts (ediblecrafts.craftgossip.com)


What a fun idea! I will definitely be borrowing this. Does any bread recipe work, or does it have to be a certain kind to work in a can? Thanks for sharing!


Looks like the answer to types of presents for my staff!
Thanks for sharing.


wow this is so awesome... and very eco friendly! :)


Oh my! This is absolutely adorable! I'm definitely keeping this file. I'll let you know when I try them out. I LOVE...LOVE the ribbon. Now I'm off to explore the rest of your blog. :O)


INCREDIBLE idea!!!! Adorable, fun, yummy, creative... the perfect gift!!!!

What a darling idea! Thanks for sharing.


What a great way to recycle tin cans! I've used tin cans to make panettone at Christmas and also used little terracotta flower pots to make popovers.

I have also used wide-mouthed canning jars to bake banana-nut bread in. After baking, let cool, then you can put a pretty round fabric covering cut with pinking shears on the lid and the ring over that. We also made these to give to visitors at my church. These are very sterile.


How do you eat them? With a fork straight from the tin?

This is SO happening in my kitchen. It's brilliant.


Thanks for the great idea! Since I read your post, I've successfully made banana bread, pumpkin bread, almond poppy seed bread and apple bread in soup cans. I use PAM baking spray to spray the cans, and I haven't had any problems getting the bread to come out of the cans. I think this would work with any quick bread, as long as you reduce the baking time to 30 - 35 minutes. The only problem is that it's hard to do a drizzle or a glaze because the top of the bread is so small.

Oh, and to Beth's comment, when the food is originally canned, the can and food are subjected to pretty high temperatures for a pretty long time. I wouldn't think there would be any issues with the cans in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Sounds like a great idea and after I try Orange Quick Bread I'm going to have a try at light fruit cake for Christmas gifts :).

How much do u fill the can with? Do u fill it half way with the mixture?

What a neat idea, even if I only get to use the old can once or twice, I'm going to have to try this. Can a recipe be adapted to make small loaves on bread for individual use say at a dinner party for soup, or with garlic? served with pasta?

I loved this. I usually make this with tea in the evenings. I could make one big cake in a 1 pound coffee can but, I like making 3 because then I have one to serve, one to freeze and one to give as a gift.
