Meet the Guest Blogger
Today we are thrilled that My Jane Does will guest blog for the Junior League of Charleston’s blog (Cooking In The South) and share one of their founder’s very own recipes. Holly Roberson, active member of the Junior League of Charleston and co-founder of My Jane Does concocted this recipe in her quest to maximize taste and health.
With October in the air, mums in bloom and pumpkins plentiful, there is no reason not to whip up a few batches of this easy, healthy pumpkin bread. It is perfect for breakfast, snack or even dessert (don’t worry, we won’t tell the kids it’s good for them). And, Holly says it’s super delicious.
Pumpkin Bread for Dessert
This bread is perfect for dessert and pairs well with any fancy party. You can slice the bread and cut it into pretty shapes, top it with fresh whipped cream and serve with a full chocolaty red wine. Your guests will swoon.
Pumpkin Bread for a Side Dish
It makes a hearty complement to pumpkin sausage soup or a thick lentil soup for those brisk evenings. Be sure to peruse the Charleston Receipts Repeats Cookbook for lots of soup ideas.
Pumpkin Bread for Breakfast
This bread is so hearty and healthy (oatmeal, pumpkin, and dried fruit) that is makes a substantial breakfast. The kids will love it and think they are getting dessert for breakfast. Once they head off to school, you may want to indulge in a slice grab a cup of hot coffee and see what inspiration strikes. Rumor has it that some autumnal sonnets might have been inspired by this bread. One fact is verifiable, you won’t have to ask to be called Sugar and Spice and everything when you serve this bread.
