I Put some of that Baked Pumpkin to Good Use

As soon as I got home from work yesterday, I baked some pumpkin bread.

On a whim I decided to add sugar and cinnamon to the top before baking.

It baked into this rather nice crunchy, oh-so-cinnamony topping.

It is very moist and good. I used my own revised recipe, but eliminated the chocolate chips.

Speaking of pumpkins....

Isn't this cute? I usually see pumpkin topiaries put together with a metal pole shoved through the middle of all the pumpkins. This would be so much easier and the display would last longer since the gourds were not cut into. Of course, this wooden holder is very nicely made (i.e. $$$), but you could just nail a couple of old boards together to get the same effect. I think the boards would actually lend an air of rustic charm.

I have been working now and then on the pinwheels. This is how many I have completed (36).


  1. Pumpkin bread..looks so delicious, Zoey! I like the crunchy sugary topping.
    Don't those pinwheels make you dizzy while working on them?

  2. I'll be right over for a slice of that pumpkin bread!! What a great idea to add sugar and cinnamon on the top, will have to remember to do that.

    Love that pumpkin display...as you say, making your own wooden holder would lend it a rustic charm!

    As always, I'm in awe of your quilting projects:-) xoxo

  3. Betty,
    No, they don't make me dizzy, but I am getting of making them. I will have to stop soon and decide what to do with them all.

    Hi Pea,
    I will get the table ready, come on over.

  4. Pumpkin bread is just so autumn! I love the smell of it too.
    Your quilt squares look pretty.

  5. I just love the way the house smells when I'm baking! Unfortunately, H and I couldn't possibly eat everything I bake, so I take most everything to our local animal shelter for the ladies who work there, or to the clinic where I volunteer on Thursday mornings. Keeps our waistlines in check!
