Hot spiced pumpkin bread, just out of the oven, dabbed with real butter and drizzled with a couple swirls of honey...oh yes! I love making comfort food!
My return to an outside job has been delayed again till next week.
I love being at home. I've been cooking up a storm, trying to stretch everything. Most things taste pretty good when stretched :)
Now, we're eating down our pantry. I discovered a few cans of canned pumpkin and wondered how I might use them.
Then I remembered Kathie's spiced squash bread, which can also be made with pumpkin.
I made it up, with a few substitutions based upon what was at hand (and what wasn't, such as cranberries or raisins) and one loaf was make per the recipe and with the other, I rolled the dough flat after the first rising, and spread it with butter, dark brown sugar and cinnamon, and rolled it back up into a loaf for the second rise ...
Both were delicious! The cinnamon one didn't last...my daughter made off with a sizeable hunk, and requests for more...
A house suffused with the warm fragrance of baking bread, cinnamon, and ginger...mmm!
