And it’s been mighty cold and unpleasant these past few days. So, to warm up and cheer up, I had to bake something that evoked all those toasty feelings.
The answer was pumpkin bread. After getting the recipe recco from my sister’s friend, I headed to Averie Cooks for her Cream Cheese- Filled Pumpkin Bread. It looked divine. I was so ready…
Despite its imperfections, the pumpkin bread was exactly what I was looking for. It was spicy and sweet, dense and moist, comforting. Biting into the bread was kind of like getting a hug from your old friend, soft, inviting and familiar. This was the perfect warm up for the coming Christmas Cookie Bake-A-Thon!
