One of my favorite things to eat (because I don’t like actually MAKING it) is pumpkin bread. Spread a little cream cheese on it and life is good! It’s Bot Bot and Lil’ Girl’s favorite too. They would eat my pumpkin bread ALL DAY LONG. Girls after my own heart.
Yesterday I made a few loaves of it and the hubs took one to work today for an auction that they were having. The proceeds go towards the local Town Pump, which matches donations and sends it right on over to the Food Bank. He just messaged me and said that my little loaf went for $80! How awesome is that! The generosity of that goes hand in hand with this season is one of my favorite things. Ever.
Since some one seemed interested in the bread, I thought I’d share the recipe with you. Remember, I’m not so great at measuring things, so when it comes to the vanilla and the spices, I go by what looks best. The actual numbers I give you are an estimate. 🙂 I also made my own oat flour. It’s ridiculously easy. No really! I did it so you can too. I buy the giant box of Quaker Oats and Costco and just poured a couple cups into my blender, set it on “liquefy” and wham bam thank you ma’am oat flour!
And sorry about the pictures. I don’t do a good job taking them while I cook, and this is what’s left. 🙂
