We love giving gifts in jars or recipe kits for the holidays, and here's an especially charming idea from Sunset: quick bread in a milk bottle (or mason jar)!

Authors Charity Ferreira and Jil Peters layered the dry ingredients for Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Quick Bread in glass bottles "from milk we bought in an independent food market, which is a good source for milk from small, local dairies." Alternatively, they suggest using quart-size canning jars. (We have also seen vintage milk bottles for sale at Etsy.) The lucky recipient just has to add wet ingredients – buttermilk, eggs, and butter – and bake.

Although one could use other quick bread mixes (such as a cinnamon bread, for instance), this particular recipe from Sunset looks especially nice with the layers of oats, chocolate chips, and nuts.
