Don your aprons, it's punkin' bread time!

The last few years we have started a tradition of making pumpkin bread (Cheryl Blair shared her UNbelievable recipe a few years back). For those of you who don't know Cheryl she is Cherise Sallaway's (from Frisco 4th ward) mom. Anyway, fall just isn't fall at the Argyle home anymore until we have spent a Sunday afternoon baking pumpkin bread and then delivering it to a few families that we either visit teach, home teach, want to say "thank you" to, want to say "get well soon" to, want to say "hello" to etc. It has become such a fun family tradition that we thought we would share it with you. Maybe some of you who have daughters will start this tradition down the road some time. (I say "daughters" because at our house this is what we do while the boys enjoy THEIR tradition of watching the Cowboy game.)


Kiki likes to don her "Young Chefs Academy" apron first. (She and Reagan take cooking classes there sometimes.)

Here is the cast of characters: (nod to Pioneer Woman)


Here is the actual recipe. The icing recipe on the top is good to add too. (Ignore the Neiman Marcus cake recipe on the bottom.)


The chefs at work....



We got these cool pumpkin pans last year. My kids like to take some in their lunch boxes and it is just the right portion size for a lunch treat.



Here is the finished product after it has cooked.



Here it is all wrapped up "cutesy-fied", ready to deliver!




ENJOY!

Hello, its more like pumpkin CAKE its sooo good! Our family uses this recipe too. I think my mom got it off a Libby's pumpkin can a looong time ago.

We delete the allspice and cloves and add mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to ours. To die for! You oughta try it!
