After taking a merciless beating from the antagonistic beast that is writer’s block, I decided to take a break and indulge in one of my favorite comfort foods. I figured that if I was to receive no satisfaction from my literary creativity, I would certainly get some from my culinary prowess.
Here’s what I enjoyed and I hope you do, too!
Easy Pumpkin Bread
1 15 oz can of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie fill)
1 box of Spice Cake Mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cake mix and pumpkin in a large bowl. Pour into a lightly greased or sprayed baking pan (approx. 9×13) Bake approx. 40 minutes.
You can eat this plain, with honey butter (recipe below) or with toppings of your choice.
Today, I used candied pecans and coconut flakes and popped it back in the oven for 5 additional minutes to lightly toast the coconut. You can also sprinkle the top with powdered sugar, marshmallow topping, or whatever your taste buds demand at the time!
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup honey
2 tsp. cinnamon
Mix ingredients and indulge 🙂
