Is there anything more satisfying for a sweet craving than a big rich piece of cake? How about a fresh slice of homemade bread? That’s right, bread. Roll up your sleeves and get ready to knead, because these 13 delectable bread recipes will tempt those with even the sweetest of sweet tooths!

1. Pan Dulce

In Spanish, ‘pan dulce’ is the name given to a variety of dessert-style breads in Mexico. This version of pan dulce is a classic, with mixed nuts, chocolate chips and lemon rind for that added bit of zest. Can you say “delicioso?”

2. Walnut Bread

Savoury yet sweet, this tasty walnut bread is the best of both worlds. Try sweetening it up by adding an icing or honey glaze, or play up its savoury side by pairing it with a slice of cheese and a dried fig. The choice is yours!

3. Monkey Bread

This super fun cinnamon pull-apart bread is the perfect sweet treat for dessert-lovers who don’t mind getting their hands a bit sticky! If you really want to treat yourself, try serving it warm with a dollop of vanilla bean ice cream.

4. Challah Bread

With only a hint of honey and a bit of sugar, this traditional Jewish egg bread is perfect if you’re craving something on the sweet side, but not too over the top. Try serving it with a bit of butter or jam for brunch (or for any meal, really).

5. Pineapple Buns

As a popular treat in Hong Kong, these sugary pineapple buns make for a fun and tasty summer snack. Don’t be fooled though– they don’t actually have any pineapple in them, they simply get their name from their adorable pineapple-like appearance.

6. Figgy Buns with Hazelnuts and Walnuts

These delightful, little figgy buns are as fun to eat as they are to say! Slightly crunchy, a little sticky and a lot of yum. There’s just the right amount of sugar to sweeten it up, allowing for the real flavour to come from the toasted nuts and dried figs.

7. Panettone

Traditionally, this Italian bread is used as a Christmas and New Year’s dessert. But once you discover how rich, fruity and deeply savoury it is, you’ll be baking this bread year-round. Best enjoyed after dinner with a steaming hot cappuccino in hand.

8. Nutty Banana Bread

An absolute classic, this banana bread should be a staple in every baker’s recipe repertoire. It’s quick, easy and adored by all. If you’re feeling extra sweet, try adding a handful of milk chocolate chips or dark chocolate chunks to the batter.

9. Cinnamon Buns

There’s nothing like waking up to the smell of freshly baked cinnamon buns. These classic treats are just the thing you need to satisfy those early morning cravings. Enjoy them as is, or try jazzing them up a bit with homemade fruit jam or toasted nuts.

10. Zucchini Muffins

Okay, so technically this isn’t a bread recipe — but you can easily swap the muffin tray for a loaf pan and get the exact same, delicious results. Whatever method you choose, these soft and chewy zucchini treats make for the perfect light bite.

11. Brioche Loaves

With a subtle yet delectable sweetness, these heavenly loaves will sweep you off your feet. On top of just eating it plain, brioche also makes for a great addition to many sweeter desserts such as this Oven-Baked French Toast or this Brioche Fruit Pudding.
