Garam Masala Pumpkin Bread

I’ve been neglecting this blog for almost a whole year. I have no excuses, audiologist no interesting stories about sabbaticals and traveling abroad, cheapest no real reasons why I’ve been so quiet. It’s a simple reason, valeologist really. I was busy. Just trying to figure out the ins and outs of life with a baby, a fulltime job and a 2-hour commute. Cooking has taken a back seat, and the blog was left behind. But no more. I’m committing to cooking and posting again. Starting now.

I know I say this every year, but I’ll say it again – Fall is my absolute favorite time of year to cook. I love all of the colorful harvest ingredients. The squashes and apples and pears. The welcome coolness in the air. Footballs on Saturdays and Postseason baseball. Oktoberfest beers.

This recipe has been sitting in my drafts folder since last year. It’s a simple pumpkin bread, but I’ve used Garam Masala instead of the typical “pumpkin pie spice”. The result is a slightly more exotic bread that is just as moist and addictive as its traditional cousin. It also makes an excellent office Halloween treat.
