Baking Weekend, Hits & Misses

Last of the Fall flowers
  • This weekend was pretty quiet. The weather switched from constant rain, to beautiful sunshine. I did get to experiment with a few things in the kitchen. Some worked out, others not so much. I really wanted to just hibernate and watch movies and read, which I did a bit of. The movies were really bad, but I never turn then off. I'm in to the end. So...



  • Pumpkin bread, a hit.
  • Homemade pumpkin latte, a miss. But I did end up making in into a pumpkin custard, so-so.
  • Chocolate chip cookies, a hit.


  • I found the Pumpkin bread recipe on YT. I didn't want a cake. I wanted a bread and this recipe delivered, with as always, a few modifications of my own. I wasn't home to watch the 2nd rise but was home to see it baked. It got a little out of control in rising, but I like how it looked and tasted.

Pumpkin Bread

7 oz of pumpkin puree, fresh or canned (I drained the puree because it seemed a little watery.)

16 oz unbleached all purpose flour

3 tbsp ground golden flax seed

3 tbsp psyllium husk

1 oz melted butter

1 oz sugar

1 egg

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

3 tsp instant yeast or 2 tsp traditional yeast

3.5 fl oz of warm water to dissolve yeast and sugar
