Pumpkin-cornbread-in-pan

Pumpkin Cornbread

Rich and silky canned pumpkin purée can enliven so many baked goods – biscuits, cakes, muffins, mousses, you name it. We particularly like it with cornbread, as the result balances perfectly between sweet and savory.

Banana Bread with Toffee Bits and Chocolate Chips

Our basic banana bread recipe is a go-to favorite of ours and was ripe for experimentation.

While we consider the walnuts optional in our basic rendition, they temper the sweetness added by the toffee bits and mini chips, so […]

Banana Bread

We went on the hunt for the perfect banana bread. Here was our criteria: we wanted a quick bread using oil and the-wet-and-dry method for ease of preparation. We also wanted maximum banana flavor but found many banana bread recipes were dense and gummy when loaded with fruit, something we wanted to avoid. Certainly the […]
