I'd made Pumpkin Spice Muffins before. However, this time, I wanted a loaf, and of course, I had to make some changes. :) This time, I used brown sugar and cardamom as well as butter for increased flavor. I'm not sure why I used so many spices since the coffee grinder broke and I was left with mortar and pestle! I guess I just forgot we didn't have an operational one anymore. Luckily, we got another one now, so I'll have it if I want to make this bread again. :)

What are your favorite spices for baking? How do you grind them?

  1. I so have to make this!!!!! Pinning! So,...I hate to admit it, but I use spices straight from the jar. I never grind my own. I do try to use vanilla beans when I can. But, other than that,...straight from the jar. Thank you for this recipe! I'll try it with butternut squash since it is really hard to get "true" pumpkin in France. So, I was thinking of leaving the walnuts out. What would that do to the bread?

  2. Then that's just one less step you have to do to make this spiced pumpkin bread! :) I bet butternut squash would taste wonderful in this bread. I'd make that tradeoff to live in France! The walnuts just give the bread additional texture and a bit of nutty flavor. You should be able to make the bread perfectly fine without them. :) Let me know what you think once you've given it a try! :)

  3. My only attempt at a pumpkin bread turned out dark and dry. I need to find a new one and this looks good! I had to finally replace my oven and microwave this week. My husband talked me into a convection system so I am going to be on a real learning curve! wish me luck!
