Your Next Gift

First - if you haven't checked out yesterday's gift, scroll down and do so. It's only good for one more day.

Today: a holiday recipe. I used to bake these as mini-loaves and give them as gifts.


Pumpkin Bread

3 c biscuit mix
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 can (16 oz) pumpkin
1 t pumpkin pie spice
½ t ground cloves
½ t ground nutmeg
1 c chopped nuts

Oven: 350
Grease 9x5x3 loaf pan (or use 3 mini pans)
Beat all ingredients in large mixer bowl on low speed, scraping constantly, 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed, scarping occasionally, 4 minutes. Pour into pan. Bake about 1 hour 10 minutes, until toothpick comes clean. (About 40 minutes for mini-pans) Cool 10 minutes, remove from pan. If desired, cool completely and spread with browned butter glaze.

Optional: Browned butter glaze
Heat 1/4 c butter in saucepan over medium heat until delicate brown; remove from heat. Mix in 1 c powdered sugar. Stir in 2-4 T hot water, 1 T at a time until of desired consistency. Spread or pour on cooled loaf.

It is VERY easy. I used to bake double batches, then wrap and freeze to give as gifts.

My hubby likes banana bread-- I wonder if he'd like this too.
