These easy cake and quick bread recipes are ideal for tucking into a lunchbox to be enjoyed for dessert or an afternoon treat. Choose from banana, zucchini, and pumpkin bread; applesauce, carrot, and chocolate cakes; and lots more.
Whether you prefer soft, steamy yeast rolls, crusty French rolls, flaky buttermilk biscuits, or buttery crescent rolls, a bounteous bread basket is a Thanksgiving essential. You can bake any of these rolls or biscuits a few weeks in advance and keep them in the freezer, tightly wrapped, until the day before Thanksgiving. Thaw them at room temperature and warm them in the oven right before dinner.
