Mmmm, I just had my first taste of fall! A piece of Pumkin bread from the Cafe at work. I know Fall doesn't officialy start until Septemebr 22nd, but I am so excited for fall to come and all the wonderful comfort foods associate with it!
The bread was so moist, I could barely spread butter on it! The large pieces of walnuts were the perfect touch! I think I am inspired, I want to try and make pumkin bread this year! Maybe I'll try this recipe from AllRecipes.com .
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups solid pack pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups white sugar
2/3 cup water
