In Kristin's World — autumn
Pumpkin Bread SERVINGS: 8 TIME: 1 HOUR 30 MINUTES This is a towering, craggy pumpkin bread with a crisp cinnamon sugar lid that is impossible not to pick off in deeply satisfying bark-like flecks. Trust me, someone in my family notnamingnames did exactly that this morning, and I almost cannot blame them. Very key here is the size of your loaf pan because this will fill out every speck of it before it is done. Mine holds 6 liquid cups; it’s 8×4 inches on the bottom and 9×5 inches on the top. If yours is even slightly smaller or you’re nervous, go ahead and scoop...
Is it a walk through the misty woods, with the smell of wet soil, crunchy leaves, bark and a burning fireplace in the distance? Maybe it’s being curled up with a cashmere throw on a vintage leather chair by a roaring fire? For us, it is all about exotic Chai and toasted Pumpkin.
