How do I eat my pumpkin bread?

Oh, how I love this pumpkin bread.  It smells fantastic and tastes even better.  To make this experience even better, I fix myself pumpkin pie latte and cut a huge piece of this bread.  I enjoy my bread and latte outside on my back porch.  This is where you would have found me just before 7:00 am this past weekend, both Saturday and Sunday morning.  It was the best start to a weekend.  The cool morning fall breeze was like being in heaven.  The birds were singing.  The coffee kept me warm.

Perfect Morning With Pumpkin Bread

The fall spices in the pumpkin bread smelled terrific and kept me so excited.  It was hard to eat it slowly.  I had to get a second piece so I could slow down and enjoy it even more.  It was a perfect morning.

This time, I made a honey cream cheese butter to spread on it.  Spice the butter up with little pumpkin spice.  If you want to dress the pumpkin bread up for a fantastic dessert, add some praline sauce over it.  You will be doing a Happy Dance.

Cooking Tip:

I have a confession.  If you look closely at my bread pictures, you will see the very center of my bread is not entirely done.  Bake this bread for 55 minutes and then tested it with a toothpick.  It was not done.  I let it cook another 5 minutes, tested it again.  The toothpick came out clean, but I did not test it in the very center of the bread.  This bread needed another couple of minutes.

  • Use a toothpick to test this bread after 55 minutes.  Insert the toothpick in several places as deep as you can to see if it comes out, not wet.
