Ever since I learned how to make homemade pumpkin puree I have been experimenting with ways I could incorporate the puree. The truth is I ended up creating the same tried and delicious recipes. Such as my amazing homemade pumpkin bread, which by the way is delicious. But I think the title speaks for itself.
When I began experimenting with pumpkin puree I mean I experimented with it. I tried it in my coffee, which wasn’t that bad until I got to the bottom. (Insert gross face here). I then decided I wanted to make bread.
Not too long ago, ok a while ago, I bought Alicia Silverstone’s book “The Kind Diet”, inside was a recipe for Vegan pumpkin bread. I tried it and must say it was delicious, but the problem was the ingredients. At the time of the book being published most of the ingredients were just too expensive.
Fast forward to now, I am living in France where most of the country is not Vegan. In fact, it is almost as though I have stepped back into time a little, meaning there are limited vegan and vegetarian products. Though thankfully they do not taste like feet as the products in the states used to. (looking at you vegan lunch meat)
So, I took a little of what I knew from the recipe and incorporated it with what I know about regular bread, thus my amazing homemade pumpkin bread was born.
