Tuesday's Tasty Treat: Pumpkin Bread

Tuesday, September 28, 2010
I love to bake, but let's face it. It can be time consuming. All the measuring, stirring, mixing, folding, and baking time aren't for the time-challenged.

When Autumn hits, I get the baking bug. There's something about the cooler weather and fall's crops that make me want to head to the kitchen and crank up the oven. I was in the mood yesterday, but I didn't have a whole lot of time. My daughters were begging for pumpkin bread. I didn't have most of the necessary ingredients, and I didn't have time to run to the store to buy them. I headed to the pantry, and look what I found.

It is so unlike me to use a box mix for baking. But the box mixes for quick breads are surprisingly good. It was easy to prepare, required 3 ingredients in addition to the mix, and the resulting bread was moist and delicious. So, in a pinch, this is good stuff.

If you've got the time to whip up a homemade batch, this recipe is one of my favorites.
