It’s pumpkin season; when smelling pumpkin spice aromas becomes an everyday occurrence. The color of the leaves is changing, and so are the foods. Cooking with pumpkin is always a treat, because it gives everything you cook with it that orange tint, and turns it pretty. And what better way to enjoy this season’s produce other than to enjoy some pumpkin spice flavored baked goods; like pumpkin bread, with cinnamon icing, and some hot tea?!
At my day job, I’ve been making vegan sweet breads for a while. Autumn is my favorite season. It just inspires me. That’s why I decided to try making pumpkin bread. I just added pumpkin puree and made a couple of minor alterations to the main sweet bread recipe that I use. There are, of course, other vegan recipes that call for different ingredients like this delicious looking one by Loving it Vegan.
I would say this is an easy recipe to make. I didn’t have to experiment to get it right the first time.
It always makes me happy when a non vegan likes my vegan food. And I am delighted to report that my dad (who isn’t a vegan), among other people, loved it and kept raving about it.
If you like my pumpkin bread recipe and/or if you try to make it please tag me and let me know how it goes. ^^
