Spiced Pumpkin Bread

I started out thinking I would make
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread.
Sounds good, huh?

I saw it on Pintrest and when I went to the recipe
I found it was all in metric.
Not gonna happen. 
Did I mention it was 4:30 AM?
I'm not sure I've got what it takes to convert
measurements and temperatures 
at 4:30 PM, 
I can guarantee I
have it at 4:30 AM. 

But I can 
any time of day and I came 
upon this recipe.

I had the presence of mind to peruse the
comment section.
It seemed unanimous that the 3 cups
of sugar was a little excessive.
So I cut it back to 2 1/4 cups.
There were suggestions of altering the spice
combination as well as adding
dried cranberries.
So I did both!
I left out the cloves and put in
cardamom instead
and added cranberries.
All thoughts of chocolate chips melted away.

I will say it is not overly 
pumpkin-y tasting
but it is very good.

Maybe next time swapping out the spices
for a chai spice blend?
Maybe some time I will get around to those
chocolate chips.


  1. Can you pls make this while you're here for the bb naming??? The boys totally love pumpkin stuff...:p

  2. I will make them whatever they want :o)
