Blogging vs. Pumpkin Bread


I signed on this morning to do a post (not sure what on)... and started reading blogs. I started off with Birmingham friends and clicked from blog to blog. I ended up on Melissa's blog and found this recipe.

Then the big debate- do I do a design post or head to the kitchen? Well... the pumpkin bread won. And here it is:

And yes, I am 'that' girl. I'm home alone and I went to the trouble of making it... so why not eat the piece I want? Straight out of the middle.

Here's the recipe in case you want to enjoy (note- I found out that it's actually from my church's old cookbook):

Best-Ever Pumpkin Bread
1 1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 cups sifted flour
2 cups (or one can) of pumpkin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon allspice
2 (3 oz) boxes of cook and serve vanilla pudding (not instant!!)

Beat together oil & sugars, adding eggs one at a time. Blend well. Add pumpkin. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Pour into two bread loaf pans that have been greased and floured. Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes. Inhale the wonderful aroma! When it's done, sprinkle the top with cinnamon & sugar and slice.

oooh I was thinking about making apple bread, but now I think I've changed my mind!

oh man! it looks great, brooke. i wish i had gotten your comment earlier this morning...i had some already made at my house. you could have come over and grabbed a slice since we live so close.

however, i am glad you tried it on your own and experienced the wonderfulness with out me leaning over you the whole time saying, "don't you just love it? isn't it great!? i mean, it's so good, right?"

happy cool, fall day!

Yummy! I wish I can say I got as much done this morning. My two dogs are driving me crazy while I work in my dining room.

They are tackling each other, moving furniture, biting, crying. I'm going nutty over here!

That bread looks delish!
