Hey there! How’s your weekend going? Ours has been a whirlwind.
But before I get to that, let me share a loaf of bread!This loaf is glowing orange — because it’s full of pumpkin! When I saw King Arthur’s Holiday Pumpkin Bread, I had to give it a try. Tis the season, right?I’m still new to braiding and twisting bread, so this loaf was a little more work than usual. At some points, my braid turned out even and perfectly twisted…and at other points, it was more… abstract. Ha.But luckily, every bit of it tasted really good. Moist, soft, and just slightly sweet.
I stuck to the recipe pretty closely but subbed in an extra cup of wheat for white flour and added a tablespoon of vital wheat gluten. The key ingredient, in my opinion, was the crystallized ginger. Yum!We ate our loaf sliced, toasted, and buttered for breakfast. Occasionally, we topped it with Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter spread, too. And within two days it was gone :). The end.
