I said I was going to post more this week, didn’t I? So sorry. I finally jumped on the Hunger Games wagon and haven’t really stopped reading which means I’ve been sitting on the couch doing nothing for a few days. I’ll probably finish Catching Fire tonight and will go nuts since I have to wait until I can make it back to the library for book 3.
Anywho, I have a lot of pumpkin to use and have been looking through recipes for something easyish to make. I settled on some cookies before I realized I didn’t have the butter to make them. Lame. So I decided I wanted Starbucks pumpkin bread since I haven’t seen it here. I searched Pinterest until I found a recipe that I had all the ingredients for.
Check it out HERE.
The ingredients are:
1 ½ cups flour (I used a mix of white and wheat because I can’t just follow directions)
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon cloves
¼ teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup pumpkin puree
¾ cup canola oil
What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix first 8 ingredients (everything before the eggs) in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl mix the eggs, sugar, and vanilla before adding the pumpkin and oil.
Combine them all and dump in a loaf pan.
The original recipe had the option of adding pumpkin seeds to the top. All I had were almonds so I put them on the top of half the loaf.
Bake at 350* for about 60 minutes. Cool and slice. Yummo!
It’s been a couple years since I’ve have the real Starbucks pumpkin bread but this is pretty darn good stuff! The home made pumpkin coffee creamer I made to go with it though was absolutely awful.
