With fall comes my irrational need to bake all things pumpkin. While at the store the other day, I grabbed a couple of cans of pumpkin puree since there weren’t that many left as it is; can you imagine what it’ll be like come Thanksgiving?
I had recently visited one of my favorite coffee shops near my apartment and had picked up a slice of pumpkin bread while I was there. Ever since, I was convinced I needed to try and make my own, even though I had never tried baking pumpkin bread before. A little searching along the blogsphere lead to me a great recipe at The Shoebox Kitchen.
I think what I loved the most about this recipe was the amount of cinnamon and nutmeg; I think it kinda made a huge difference in taste. I was optimistic about how the end result would turn out when I tried the batter. Soo yummy!
Even though it took over an hour for both loaves to bake, it was completely worth the wait. I took one loaf over to Alex’s and this recipe is completely boyfriend approved; half of his loaf is already gone! I’m glad I have one to myself, so I can have pumpkin bread and coffee for breakfast for as long as I want. :)
