Tonight I had the hankering for pumpkin bread. What if I made a few mini loaves, so I could gift one to a new friend I am meeting tomorrow? So I pulled up Google and typed in Pumpkin Bread Mini Loaves. This one caught my eye: “Pumpkin Mini Loaves with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting” I mean does that not sound yummy???
Now this recipe says it makes 8 mini loaves!!! I was thinking “YAY!” – I will have enough to take to church in the morning. However, I was also skeptical on how that was possible with the quantities listed for the ingredients of this recipe. It made 3 mini loaves at my house! This just means I have to make another batch if I am taking any to church (we have a small congregation).
It also states that it should bakes 20-30 minutes. At 30 minutes I still found the bread pretty soupy in the middle. I was able to take mine out at 45 minutes.
After letting them rest in the pan for 10 minutes, they are now on the cooling rack. I couldn’t resist and me and the husband snagged a taste of the warm bread. The flavor is really good, the bread moist and not crumbly, but not too dense. This is a good recipe. I am looking forward to making the frosting for when they are completely cooled down.
Frosting made, so yum! Home-made Cream Cheese Frosting.. nothing beats that! I now have 2 mini loaves of bread iced and stored. So happy with my baking tonight.
