hey ya!

Over the Halloween weekend we went to Astoria, Oregon, pictures soon. so i apologize to Karen aka Fab Grandma, and the Mouche for not getting back to ya.

so for Karen and the pumpkin loaf recipe

4Tmelted butter
1/2 C Sugar
2 large eggs
15 oz canned pumpkin
1/4 t ground cloves
1 1/3C Pamela's mix
1/2 t salt 1t cinnamon
1/2 t ginger

yields one 8x4 loaf
Preheat oven to 350. beat together butter, sugar, egg and pumpkin. Add remaining loaf ingredients and mix completely. pour into a greased 8x4 pan. bake for 50-60 minutes or when toothpick inserted comes out almost clean.

i used fresh baked pumpkin, because thats what i had, and i also "floured" the pan with more Pamela's Baking and Pancake mix. they sell the mix in a HUGE bag (4lb) and i use it for everything! it makes a great base for rues, pie crust, crumble topping etc.

this recipe also had an optional nut topping. 2T melted butter,1/3C packed brown sugar, 1/2C of nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans) mix nut topping and smooth evenly over batter to the edges of the pan, pat lightly.

also to note it freezes pretty good too.

and to the 'Mouche... Washington, somewhere in the middle ish. and i already voted. thankfully Washington is a blue state.

Thank you for the recipe, and for the tips on using Pamela's. I use it for baking but have not had the sense to use it for flouring pans and such. thanks!

Ive never had anything pumpkin - except as a vegetable, boiled, like a potato. All this pumpkin pie stuff is another world to me :)

I'm moving to British Columbia in January. Good to know the scenery will be similar :)
