First Fall Project: Pumpkin Bread!

Okay, I know I've been a little bit slow on getting those promised Fall projects posted. I'm working on some wet felted and needle felted Fall pins ... so stay tuned for those (I think you're going to like them!!!) ... but in the meantime, here's a delicious Pumpkin Bread recipe that will definitely make your house smell delicious while it's cooking ... and then, when you taste this, you won't believe how moist and fabulous it is!
The recipe is Belle's Easy Pumpkin Bread from the Very Best Baking website. You'll find lots of other great Libby's Pumpkin recipes there, too.
 I sprinkled powdered sugar on top and, really, the taste was just fabulous, if I do say so, myself!
The recipe made two loaves. The only change I made was to reduce the oven temperature to 325-degrees F after an hour. It took about 1 hour and 15-20 minutes for them to be completely cooked. I used brown-tinted glass bread pans, which I know you're not supposed to use ... but still, the bread came out perfectly!

mmmmm, that looks so good. I had those butterscotch straw candies that Grandma Mumm used to make. Someone made them at a workshop I attended. it really brought back memories.

I would love that recipe! I never tasted anything Grandma Mumm might have made. I don't remember ever even meeting her. :( I vaguely remember their apartment and, for some strange reason, a bag of marshmallow circus peanuts under a bed. That's about it.
