Baking Day

So being pregnant I have not been in the mood to bake or even cook, but this weekend I went a little crazy. I had to make a dessert for a party we went to, so I decided to try out a new recipe for Mellow Pumpkin Creme Brulee. Since I was making that I also decided to make some normal creme brulee (my hubby does not enjoy anything pumpkin) and since I had left over pumpkin I decided to use that to make Downeast Maine Pumpkin bread. Here is the recipe.
Now a little bit about the recipes, the pumpkin creme brulee was good, but in all honesty I prefer normal creme brulee or pumpkin pie. It was pretty easy to make and it sure did look pretty, so if you want a fancy fall dessert why not give it a try.
The pumpkin bread is a very yummy recipe. I have made this for years and it is always a hit at the Jacobson Family Thanksgiving (except when I forget the baking soda). The recipe makes 3 large loaves, so you can make some for yourself and some for a neighbor (this time I made it all for myself, sorry neighbors). Although bread tastes great right out of the oven, this bread actually tastes even better day 2 or 3. Make it and enjoy.

Looks like the torch worked fine! We've got to talk to the Springville dish lady and see if she's got ramekins enough for us to put this on our menu. Looks beautiful.

I'm gonna try your pump bread recipe. One of my favorite breads. Have you tried it with choc chips? Hate creme brulee so I won't be making that!
