It seems that the pumpkin and squash marathon continues. While I was enjoying my pumpkin pie pancakes I thought that a pumpkin bread would also be a good idea. It started off as a pretty basic pumpkin bread but then I thought that it would be nice if I added some dried cranberries. The next thing I knew I was also adding some toasted pecans and white chocolate chips. The fully loaded pumpkin bread turned out really well. It was nice and light and moist and good. The pumpkin flavour came through well and the spices finished it off with an amazing aroma. Unfortunately the white chocolate chips seem to have melted into the bread. Next time I will have to use chucks of white chocolate bar instead. For even more pumpkiny goodness I spread some pumpkin butter on a slice of the pumpkin bread. I am looking forward to breakfasts this week!
