I may be sick...but you still need Pumpkin Bread!

Well, it's official. My oldest missed two days of school this week...followed in quick succession by my youngest (they share a room and apparently a germy hotbed). I quickly medicated, as did mexi...we've been semi-successfully dancing around the mess. Middle child awoke early this morning...it hit her head-on. And now, as I sit here with tears and mucus threatening at their respective escape holes...I have no motivation to think. Sheets and blankets are being stripped of germs in a hot, hot water cycle...windows are open trying to let in fresh air (but is this a good idea...the cold, the warm, the cold, the warm....is this where it all started in the first place?)...and nothing else seems important. I just want to veg. Do absolutely nothing. I want somebody else to make me hot soup. Yes, it's official...I'm sick. So, here's a delicious Autumn quick bread for your viewing pleasure...until I'm back up and cooking...Girlichef's Pumpkin Bread yield: 1 loaf 1 1/2 c. AP flour (or 1/2 AP, 1/2 WW) 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. sea salt (don't leave out the salt...it's important...it enhances the flavors) 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1/4 tsp. ground ginger few fresh grates of nutmeg 2 XL eggs 1/2 c. granulated sugar 1/2 c. Buckwheat Honey (or regular) 1 c. Pumpkin Puree 1/2 c. oil ~1/2 c. pecans, chopped, whole, pieces...however you want 'em Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Combine first 6 ingredients in large bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, beat together all remaining ingredients, except pecans. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined. At this point, fold in your pecans and pour into a foil-lined loaf pan OR pour the batter into the foil lined pan... ...and sprinkle the pecans over the top (easier to appease the non-nut lovers...they can just pick them off). Bake in preheated oven for 50-60 minutes...or until it passes the toothpick test.Don't over bake it...it's so moist and delicious and reminiscent of pumpkin pie. And addicting. Seriously addicting. This was my Simple Saturday post and I decided I may as well make the most of it and share as much as I could... I also wanted to give a big shout-out to Janie from Mother Moon's Message for passing me this Triple Award!! Thank you so much...how cool is that!? I'm honored that you thought of me :) Janie has 3 blogs and I enjoy each of them immensely! Pumpkin Bread on Foodista
