UPDATE: Congratulations Valerie of Don’t Forget Delicious! You’ve won the coveted Ribbon Pan! Please email me within 48 hours to claim your prize. Thanks to everyone for entering, and stay tuned for The 25 Days of Christmas…I’ll be giving away another pan and SO MUCH MORE!
Good morning! Yesterday I asked on Facebook…which would you like to see first, Pumpkin Popovers, or Pumpkin Yeast Bread?
You asked for the bread.
And so today, while you are sitting down to breakfast, consider this…
Tomorrow, you COULD be sitting down to French Toast, made with this Pumpkin Bread. Rich and full of fall flavors, a nice cinnamon vanilla syrup and bourbon whipped cream on the side.
Except you don’t have this bread.
I guarantee you’ll be making it soon, though, as it’s fall, and fall means you bake bread. And you use all the pumpkin you can get your hands on. And Thanksgiving is coming up, and you want to impress your family, especially your in-laws, right?
This bread will do that.
Don’t be expecting a cakelike bread, this is not a cakelike bread. It is a yeast bread, perfect for french toast, or a dollop of butter, or as an unusual sandwich choice. It is only a tad bit sweet, and the aroma of cardamom and orange will fill the house as it bakes. It is heaven! I chose to bake mine in this gorgeous loaf pan from Chicago Metallic, where I am a new “Partner in Baking.” What an honor! Many of my baking recipes will be featured on their site, and I am in amazing company! Go check it out soon…I think you’ll find a lot to drool over. Until then, get started on this bread!
If you don’t have the fancy loaf pan, no worries, you can certainly make it in any 9-10 cup loaf pan. It’s just that THIS pan is spectacular, and PERFECT for this bread. So impressive! (Plus, it is so weighty AND non-stick, I just adore it.) You can buy one here, or, you can scroll down a bit farther to try and WIN one! (I really do understand if you can’t take chances and need to buy it, though…it’s a pretty thing and worth every penny.)
Let me know if you get one!
And now…the recipe. I hope you’ll love it.
