It’s almost Thanksgiving folks and what I love just as much as eating and spending time with my family is shopping!
I never need a special occasion to shop and when I’m shopping I need fuel to stay productive, lol.
My Pumpkin Pie Pecan Bread with Pumpkin Spiced Cream Cheese Glaze is what’s required for us professional shoppers!
This bread is perfect to serve for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
It can be turned into french toast, bread pudding, or anything else your fancy heart desires.
Sometimes I serve it plain with hot chocolate or coffee.
I decided to kick it up a bit with my special glaze because it’s holiday season!
With loads of guest and family arriving I highly suggest you make two loaves or more of this bread.
I made one loaf and it was gone in 30 minutes!
Take my word, you’ll need more than one loaf of this moist, nutty, deliciousness!
First, I used organic canned pumpkin, 1 cup per loaf.
The key to this moist bread is to not over beat the batter.
Over beaten batter produces scones, not moist bread!
Secondly, the nuts!
Please use fresh nuts, not those nuts you froze last Thanksgiving or Christmas and you think it’s all good for this bread!
It’s not o.k., old nuts, make bad bread!
Lastly, when you bake the bread, after 60-70 minutes the bread may not appear done to you.
It’s ready, even if the center appears moist.
Let the bread rest and believe me the center will finish cooking out of the oven.
These are my secrets to moist bread.
The bread is baked and cooled now it’s glaze time!
My glaze trick is to microwave the glaze for about 15 seconds and then drizzle.
Don’t forget to top your bread with extra pecans and extra glaze when serving.
Now let’s go shopping and don’t forget to bring a piece of bread for snacking!
