Are you sick of my fall recipes? Well, if you are, I’m sorry!
I’m just getting started. I’ve never done themed recipes before so let a girl live! I’ve fallen in love with baking. It takes a really long time and you have to be precise, but it’s so much fun. I’m going to be investing in a KitchenAid very soon and I’m so excited about that. There’s so much that I have to learn when it comes to baking, so I don’t claim to be an excellent baker. If you have any issues when it comes to making this recipe, please let me know in the comments and I’m willing to help. This turned out very well for me, but everyone has different ingredients and oven temperatures.. you know how that goes. I’m a beginner just like you. Haha.
Making this bread was so difficult for no reason. I’ve been feeling ill and I was trying to fight that feeling off to develop some content for you guys. I’ve been feeling so hot and cold. I have a heating pad on my back right now as we speak with the air conditioner on. It’s that bad. Every time the weather changes, my health just goes all the way down. It’s like clockwork, my body just doesn’t take well to weather changes. I just want one Fall or Winter to go by without getting a cold. I need to sip on some bone broth and make me some type of soup. I’m going to come up with some type of soup recipe to get me through this Fall/Winter because I am so tired. My favorite soups are French Onion and Clam Chowder; maybe I should make a Chicken Chowder with lots of bacon?
Despite feeling like complete trash when making this bread and photographing it, the smell of the pumpkin spice and fresh bread got me through. There is nothing better than smelling pumpkin spice or cinnamon, it just brings so much life to your house. It’s impossible to stay in a bad mood when there’s some fresh bread in the oven. Everyone loves bread! There’s this misconception that bread makes you gain weight. No, it doesn’t. Eating the whole loaf makes you gain weight. This explains why a lot of dieters tend to cut it out whenever they’re trying to lose some pounds. You put a bread basket at the dinner table and everybody is going to have at least seconds or thirds of the bread if it’s good. I’ve never seen anyone pass up on eating some bread at dinner, NEVER!
Also, I want to let you all know that the chocolate and maple peanut butter drizzle are completely optional. You do not have to use both in this recipe and the bread will still be delicious. If you want a healthier additive to this recipe, toast up some pecans and drizzle them with some maple syrup and salt - top the bread with this topping after the bread is done and oh, man it’s delicious with some Greek Yogurt.
