I know exactly what you need this morning, a nice warm slice of this Pumpkin Bread with Maple Icing!
I took a couple of these loaves of bread with us to our new property up in the “mountains” last week for Fall break.
I say mountains loosely because our 31 acres is really just a hill.
One cool thing is that there is a small “cabin” on top of said hill.
I say cabin loosely because it’s really just a glorified shack.
But if I were to say we went to our shack on the hill, it doesn’t sound as impressive as, we went to our cabin in the mountains… you know? 😉
Anyway, we went out to our property this past weekend and spent some time fixing up this shack. We put in a new floor and I brought my sewing machine to hem some curtains. It’s looking pretty cute inside so far, and the views outside are amazing.
We don’t have any power or water up there yet, so we are using generators and bringing our own water for now.
We’re also bringing our food from home, and that’s where this bread comes in!
This recipe makes 3 small loaves of bread, which are perfect for sharing… or keeping. I brought some with us and we enjoyed it for an easy breakfast with some fruit one morning.
The bread itself is moist and flavorful, but with a thin layer of icing on top… it’s perfection!
I took my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Loaf recipe and tweaked it slightly to make this bread. I wanted to make it extra moist, so I added some evaporated milk in place of the water. I use evaporated milk in my pumpkin pie recipe, so why not?!
The results were amazing!
You’re going to love this bread whether you eat it in a shack or cabin! (or at home… whatever!) 😉
