Pumpkin Spice Bread

Slightly sweet pumpkin spice bread with real pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove and all spice topped with a yummy browned butter buttercream.

This bread was inspired by a bread, more like a loaf cake, that I saw at the grocery store last year, it was a pumpkin bread that had crumbly topping.
So I decided to swab out the crumbly topping for a browned butter glaze. Which I think I've been going through a phase in where I've been using browned butter for a lot of recipe.
It has depth a flavor that is a combo of caramel and toffee even better you add the sugar.  I made it with a buttercream for a cake and I was eating it with a spoon it was good.
I made a bread similar at the beginning of this year for Mardi Gras, it is a holiday that you induldge before the fasting for Lent. I made a King Cake bread that was cinnamon swirl bread with a glaze on top.
Here is a link to even more Pumpkin Spice recipes that I have made.

Halloween Black Grape Pop Tarts

Bat, ghost and pumpkin shape pop tarts with a tangy, black grape jam filling coated with a spooky purple and green glaze.
Also if you have been following me you know that I like to use seasonal produce. I've created recipes with local strawberries and seasonal Meyer Lemons a couple of months ago.

The seasonal produce that I will be using for this post is, seedless black grapes.

Black grapes are not that much different in taste, they are slightly more tart than red grape or green grapes.  The grape are also not actually black like a midnight sky but they are a dark rich purple color.
These tasty pastries can be cut into anything that you like but I used two different sizes of  pumpkin, bat and a ghost.

Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Muffin Tops

Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Muffin Tops, oh yes! These muffin tops have browned butter, real pumpkin, pumpkin spice (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, all spice, clove) with three different types of chocolate chips.
Muffin tops or muffies are the best part of the muffin. When I eat the muffin I only want the tops and not really eat anything else.
Another pumpkin spice recipe for my book. This recipe was inspired by one of my mother's favorite pastries that we get from Panera, if you haven't heard its a cafe-restaurant that happens to be one of my favorite places.
At Panera, they are Pumpkin Muffin Tops they also call them muffies. My mom gets a few of them all the time we go there.
With this post and recipe, I had a little helper my niece. She called me up last week and asked me when I was making cookies again, so she came over during the weekend and helped me out.
As it says above it has three different types of chocolate chips. You can use less chocolate chips or you can use all …

Ultimate Triple Cheese Bread

A super cheese bread with smoked Gouda, sharp cheddar cheese, white sharp cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese with a hint a black pepper and a kiss of ground chipotle pepper.
This is the ultimate cheesy bread with tons of cheese. I love cheese, I put cheese in or on almost everything that I can. I also really love bread. My favorite kind is smoked Gouda.
My favorite kind of bread that I found years ago was cheese bread. I've searched for the perfect cheesy bread and I found at chain cafe restaurant.
I choose these different types of cheese because I felt that they play well together. Both Cheddar cheeses are tangy, smoked Gouda has a hint of smokiness and the Parmesan has a bite and saltiness that give it a different edge.
If you are not into spiciness, you don't have to put in the ground chipotle pepper but the amount in the recipe is a 1/4 of a teaspoon. It's just a kiss of heat at the end of your bite.
