Ok… I’m going to confess- I have an addiction. A serious one. One that I will need the support of many to overcome.
That addiction being my complete devotion to pumpkin bread. I guess you can throw zucchini bread in there too, but ’tis the season for that delicious, warm, sweet, soft, fall snack. Yes, a snack, not a dessert as it often is eaten morning, noon, and night around here.
So, here’s the problem. I baked a single batch on Friday that made three regular sized loaves. Within one day, an entire loaf was gone (minus the heel which made a wonderful addition to oatmeal Sunday morning). Let me just say, I was the only one eating it. I ate an ENTIRE loaf in just about 24 hours. And I don’t even feel bad about it. I just feel like I may need to find a way to satiate this desire when I run out of pumpkin bread (which will be soon, as only 1 whole loaf is left).
In attempts to not eat the last slice of loaf #2 that is staring at me asking to be eaten, I mixed up some canned pumpkin puree and a little Fage 0% greek yogurt. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon and brown sugar but, much to my dismay, it simply is not the same. So, after painfully admitting my situation, I am asking for all of your help. Any suggestions for pumpkin bread alternatives that will keep me happy without the cups of oil, eggs, and flour? Anything, and I mean anything, will be good.
About to turn orange.
(Meaning: this morning I had pumpkin oats, for lunch/afternoon snack I had homemade butternut squash and carrot soup, then mucho pumpkin bread. Maybe an orange complexion will help me look more tan??)
