Around this season, pumpkins make their annual pilgrimage into our neighborhood bakeries, local Starbucks, and seasonal restaurant dishes. While these New World gourds can be found (and tasted!) almost anywhere you look, one thing is for sure: pumpkin-inspired dishes taste better when they’re homemade.
I created this pumpkin bread recipe with Savannah Bee Company’s Whipped Honey with Cinnamon. The Ceylon cinnamon used in the honey hails from Sri Lanka and doubles the health benefits of this impeccable spread. Unlike Cassia cinnamon, Ceylon cinnamon has finer, more aromatic characteristics, and is often referred to as “true” cinnamon.
It’s thick, creamy consistency means Whipped Honey with Cinnamon can be used in myriad ways. I actually used it as both a sugar replacement and a spread in this recipe.
Bake this delicious bread just before guests arrive and welcome them with a comforting bouquet of sweetness and spice.
