We have cans and cans of pumpkin in the larder
Always bought on sale during November!
For in October and November
we adore pumpkin bread
Always made two loaves at a time
It's false economy to make only one!
Sometimes both to be eaten by us,
othertimes, a loaf makes a great gift
And the ones, we keep
A slice makes the perfect afternoon tea nosh
Tea, a slice of pumpkin bread and a good cookbook
What better way to spend an hour or so in the afternoon?
It's an old pumpkin bread recipe
Perhaps it was my mother's or even my grandmother's
Pumpkin, flour, sugar, spices, leavening, eggs and oil
No raisins, no nuts, no streusel
Just plain old pumpkin bread
And isn't that the best kind?
