I just love finding unique ways to package and give gifts. So when I stumbled upon this idea to bake bread inside of a tin can I was certainly intrigued.
I made this incredible Spiced Stout Bread (thanks Martha Stewart) and choose to bake it and give it as a gift in a tin can. After the bread was cooked and cooled I covered the can with parchment paper. I secured the placement of the paper with a little twine. Furthermore, I wrapped the bottom half of the tin with twine, about an inch thick, to add some interest.
Prepping your can:
- Throughly wash the inside of your can
- Use pliers to push in any pieces of metal that are sticking out from when the can was originally opened
- Grease the inside of your can with melted butter
- Fill your can only 3/4th of the way full with your batter
This was a fabulous gift and people were so surprised to find a loaf of bread inside of their can!
