I love gifts that give back! My family surprised me with a birthday gift, not on my birthday. It was a huge supply of strawberry jammy bits from King Arthur Flour … and a pancake pen!
So it was late last night but I had been craving pumpkin bread for days. It won’t take long to bake up a batch right? Unfortunately I only had a small can of pumpkin, but I have some home baked apple…maybe that will do. So I don’t have to half the recipe.
Did I already say it was late? I started with this Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread recipe…decided to half it, then decided not to. So what I ended up with was I halved everthing except for the fruit…Oops! What I ended up with was 3 mini loaves that rose and browned beautifully, then fell a bit. It was quite yummy though still quite sweet and very fluffy and moist. I guess I’ll have to try again.
“You can stop tweaking this one now.” That’s what Ryan said after tasting a piece of my Banana Bread with some persimmon fruit puree snuck in to replace some of the fat and moisture. Here are a few of the recipes I analyzed and my end tweak!
