Are you sure that you haven’t been inundated enough yet with PUMPKIN? If not, then keep reading because I am jumping on this squash’s bandwagon! I’m using a recipe from the Taste of Life Greek Food Cookbook.
I used Pumpkin Spice in place of cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s a mixture of both those spices and also ginger, allspice, mace and cloves. Mace is made from the covering of nutmeg seeds.
I made a little change in the recipe from the original. I fold the dried cherries into the dry ingredients, before combining with the wet. It’s a tip I learned watching Ina Garten. It keeps them from sinking to the bottom.
Here is what the mixture looks like before it is transferred into a loaf pan.
The loaf pan should be greased. I used butter.
The bread is done baking when the skewer comes out clean.
This recipe will make your kitchen smell yummy! Happy Pumpkin Season!
Ten days ago I shared my desire to bake bread. Here’s my progress so far. I’ve begun reading The Tassajara Bread Book that arrived from Amazon. The Tassajara Bread Book is written by Edward Espe Brown, a Soto Zen Buddhist priest, teacher and chef. His website is The Peaceful Sea Sangha and he has a Facebook page.
I bought the basic ingredients for making Tassajara Yeasted bread. I went shopping at Restaurant Depot for kitchen supplies. I purchased two bread pans and a new board.
The Tassajara Yeasted Bread recipe is the basis for all the other recipes in the book, so it seems like the right place to start. The Washington Post calls The Tassajara Bread Book the “The Bible of bread baking”. I’m hoping to have a religious experience.
I want to learn to make bread. I want to learn to make it without even thinking. I want it to be effortless. I want it to be delicious…
I want I want I want I want I want… also there is no Greek angle on this post, but I have been thinking about this for a long time. Time to get into action.
Here’s my first step toward this desire: The Tassajara Bread Book by Edward Espe Brown. I need to buy this book. I learned about this book because I watch a lot of documentaries. This is one of my favorites and how I learned about the book.
I’ll keep you posted (ha! double meaning) on my progress…
