Recently I have become addicted to something sweet with my morning coffee. I am not sure where this is coming from but my recent addictions have been croissants, blueberry bread and/or pumpkin bread. My mother always made pumpkin bread for us as kids and the blueberry bread is a recent discovery. I am going to have to replicate the blueberry bread at some point. In the meantime, I know its not in season, but I wanted  share my mom’s recipe with you.

Preheat oven to 350F


  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

In a large bowl, mix:

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup of pumpkin (fresh not canned. I always freeze my pumpkin around Halloween time. I do not like using canned because there are always additional additives.)

Add the dry to wet mix. Stir thoroughly. Add in  1/3 cup of milk or water if dairy intolerant. Pour in a 9X5 greased  pan. Cook for one hour.

Recipe is egg free, fairy free, and soy free. Enjoy!
