As I was hurrying to get everything in order before we left for vacation, my MIL baked up a loaf of my pumpkin bread from the cookbook -- something we could take on the plane to nibble on. (Our total travel time was 27 hrs!).
I was busy looking for my long lost snow glove when I caught a wiff of pumpkin bliss wandering into my bedroom. I poked my head out the door and said "Are you baking something?!"
"Uh huh" she said. At that point I walked into the kitchen and saw it rising perfectly in the oven:
What a peach, my MIL.
This Pumpkin Bread is totally fat-free and whole wheat...but you'd never know. It's really awesome... and like all things pumpkin, it only gets better with age.
