Thursday night, I made delicious Pumpkin Bread. I found the recipe in a Paula Deen magazine and had to wait until the stores put pumpkin on the shelves before I could try it. One thing that I learned is that while I was looking at the ingredients, I should have also paid attention to the measurements--this recipe made enough Pumpkin Bread for an army! Of course, that didn't register with me until I measured out 3-1/2 cups of flour to combine with 3 cups of sugar and thought that my bowl might not be big enough to hold all of that! I said to myself, "Wowza, Self!!!! We're makin' a lot!" And then I had to find pans large enough to bake all of the mix! The recipe said to spray two 9x5-inch loaf pans, but just two pans that size would NOT hold all of the batter. I used one 9x13-inch pan that was sectioned to make eight mini loaves AND my Pampered Chef Rectangular Stoneware Baker, which is larger/deeper than the average 9x13-inch casserole dish! This experience reminded me of a time years ago when I made my first Pound cake. O-M-G!!!!!!!!!! We called it the TON cake. The cake batter rose and rose and rose and spilled over and over and over. At least THREE TIMES I had to take the cake(s) out of the oven and either pour some of the batter into another pan and/or place the pans on baking sheets because it was imminent that the swelling batter would definitely overflow. If I remember correctly, I had used S/R flour instead of A/P and, most likely, had added the baking soda and salt. I don't remember if all of the cakes ever did bake, but I'll never forget that experience. Pound cakes are scary things! Ha! But . . . I am sharing my Pumpkin Bread. My Inkerbelles' got a taste at class last night, my sister took two mini loaves home with her today, and I wrapped and tagged three mini loaves (pictured above) to take to my mother, daddy, and grandmother tomorrow. For holiday baking and gift-giving, this recipe is perfect and might just prove to be your all-done-in-one-shot recipe! In case you're wondering, I used Stampin' Up!'s "Cute by the Inch" and "Tiny Tags" stamp sets to create the tags.
