although my neighborhood looks like fall has already come and gone, once you leave my street the trees are still in full autumn colors. the reds, oranges and yellows are gorgeous, and they make me think of- pumpkin and all sorts of pumpkiny goodness that can be baked and eaten:D
this recipe comes from simply recipes. i tweaked a couple things- i ran out of granulated sugar, so ended up using about 1/2 cup of granulated and 1/4 cup of brown sugar (you'll see in a bit why i used less sugar). then i substituted unsweetened applesauce for the oil (and since the applesauce is sweet less sugar needed). plus, i'm still lacking allspice in my pantry so i dashed a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg.
the bread is super moist. and pumpkin with cinnamon and nutmeg is about the best combination ever. is it pumpkin pie time yet?
i couldn't help but take a picture of the fruit, probably the last strawberries i'll see/eat until next summer, but honeycrisp (they're juicy and kind of tart) apples will keep me company while it's cold.
