|Happy pumpkin (and pattern!) found here|
What was I saying?
Oh, right, pumpkin bread!! You may recall a quick tip about pumpkin in applesauce. It was supposed to be pumpkin bread, but I boo-booed.
The second time I started to make pumpkin bread, I was derailed by sick kids.
Today, finally I made pumpkin bread! Well, sort of...
I had my recipe, I got the butter out of the refrigerator to bring it to room temperature. I started gathering my ingredients...whoops, where's the pumpkin? I dug all through the pantry, but no canned pumpkin anywhere! Then I noticed this line above the recipe:
You can make this loaf with any cooked mashed squash, yams or sweet potatoes.
Perfect!! I had half a package of squash leftover from the Mini Chili Bowl recipe, and since the pumpkin bread called for 1 cup, I filled in the rest with applesauce!
Do you own this cookbook?
Back to the bread!
I followed the rest of the recipe exactly, except for the flour, I used TJ's White Wheat flour instead of all-purpose.
The one other switch I made was to replace raisins with chocolate chips. I figured that raisins would just get poo-pooed by #1 and #2, and chocolate chips would make everyone more excited about the bread.
#1 did bust me putting the squash in, so she was quite suspicious, but she still liked it! She said she couldn't taste the difference at all.
