What? I baked two days in a row! That like never happens. And while yesterday’s batch is tasty, it is not the pumpkin bread of my dreams. But the recipe, for Lynn, is the one from my old Betty Crocker cookbook, and can be found here, http://www.bettycrocker.com/Recipes/Recipe.aspx?recipeId=35695. However, in my old cookbook, they used 2/3 cup shortening instead of oil.
Today, I tried another recipe, found in a cookbook that was put together by my church for a fundraiser. Again, it’s good, and it makes the house smell yummy delicious, but once again, not the pumpkin bread I’m dreaming of having.
I’m also playing around with a fun project I found on Karyn’s blog. I found her blog through Kelli’s blog, which I found through Ruthann’s blog, which was posted on Judy’s blog. 🙂 These are all wonderful blogs, full of inspiration, and worth a visit. You might want to make yourself a cup of tea beforehand. Anyway, back to the project in progress. These are so much fun…almost addicting, so many different possibilities. Thanks for sharing it, Karyn.
So what, you are wondering, is the pumpkin bread of my dreams? My Mom’s!! And she is supposed to be copying the recipe for me. 🙂
Now I need to get back to something quilty. I’ve been working on chopping up scrap pieces, according to Bonnie Hunter’s system. More on that in my Sunday Stashbuster report later on today.
