Pro Tip: Mid-way thru baking, line the edges of the bread with foil to prevent burning.

The Importance of Salt in Baking

Have you ever wondered why there is salt in many baking recipes? Salt is an important step in baking, because it activates the baking soda – helping the batter rise as it bakes. So don’t skimp when a recipe calls for salt.  I use Real Salt.  It’s mined in the US and it is the perfect addition to both my savory and sweet recipes.  I literally tell everyone about Real Salt, because it tastes better than any other salt I’ve used.

Pumpkin Fall Feels

When September 21st hits I am ready to break out my fall candles, sweaters, and eat all of the pumpkin spice.  This pumpkin bread is always on my to-bake list, and so are pumpkin cookies, and pumpkin cake.

  1. You know fall has arrived when the pumpkin recipes come out. This sounds terrific, and I bet it will make a terrific afternoon snack. My husband just adores things like this, so I will have to give this one a try. And I love the loaf pan! It is beautiful!

  2. Eeek! I’m in the middle of making this right now…and on the ingredient list it says 2/3 c water, but nowhere in the instructions does it ever mention adding the water! So…is water even supposed to be in this recipe? OR was it just accidentally left out of the instruction part? Help! I’m not sure if I should add it or not! :-/

  3. 5 stars
    Made this bread and it was a hit to say the least. I kept one loaf at home & took one to work. My husband loved it & multiple people at work asked for the recipe. Will make over & over!! :)
