I was surprised like many others that this was not a quick bread and wondered if all the time invested would be worth it for a pumpkin bread. But this is no ordinary pumpkin bread. This is a whole other level of pumpkin bread. I started this bread on Sunday afternoon and was not prepared for the overnight rise, but luckily I work from home on Mondays, so I could accommodate the three risings. And what a great workday treat to have fresh autumn-smelling bread coming out of the oven at 3 pm. On most days at 3 pm I am reaching for the 94% fat free popcorn, so my taste buds were in a real treat when this bread came out of the oven. I let it cool for about 30 minutes, slathered it with butter and inhaled it. And then I had another piece. And maybe another. It was that good.
