It’s pumpkin baking season! All you have to do is step inside any grocery store and you will see an explosion of pumpkin.
However, this one has me scratching my head……
I had a great Saturday. It was a beautiful day. Sir Streusel was getting around on his knee like a pro and I was in the kitchen recipe developing. My beloved Edna didn’t let me down. She turned out this delicious Savory Pumpkin Bread.
It is your typical baking mix. Mix the dry ingredients, mix the wet ingredients and combine the two.
Don’t mind saying, when I pulled this out of Edna, I thought it was gorgeous!
This bread has a slightly sweet pumpkin taste but the savory comes in with the Parmesan cheese, sage, thyme, salt and pepper. The Parmesan on top gives it a little crunch. With every bite I liked it more and more.
I admit. I went and got a Pumpkin Spice Latte, sliced myself a piece of Savory Pumpkin Bread, sat on my back porch and just had a pumpkin party by myself!
I hope you try this bread. It is different than other pumpkin breads. It isn’t the typical sweet bread. The savory crunch is just so good.
I hope this show up in your kitchen soon!
