I have been baking with pumpkin today...I said that I had to get some baking done. When I woke this morning I found it was raining outside...there goes my plans for planting....so I did the next best thing to gardening....Baking!!!!
I was given two large Pumpkins and a Marrow two weeks ago....so knowing they are there, waiting for me...I thought I better use up some of the stock of mashed pumpkin I have in my freezer...
When I cut a pumpkin I steam the rest of the pumpkin and put 1 cup of mash in each press-seal bag.(which I wash and re-use). I use the sandwich size...last time I did this...I put away 12 bags of pumpkin...they stack neat in the freezer and are defrosted in a few minutes because I keep them all nice and flat while they freeze. I also do this with bananas...(when they were cheaper)...before the floods.
So first in the oven was the Pumpkin bread loaf...but as I want these for work and school snacks...I used my trusty mini loaf pans...
|Made 15 with 1/3 cup of mix in each pan|
Then I made the Mini Pumpkin Mufffins recipe....but last time I made these, they were disappearing 4 or 5 at a time, so now I will try this size....and "No, you can't have two" is what I am saying now...
|Made 23 with 1/2 cup of mix in each pan|
Then I added more heat to the oven and cooked a batch of Pumpkin Scones...They are just so light and yummy....DS16 walked n the door from school...and raced to the kitchen with his nose in the air..yelling, "I can smell scones....., Where are they, Can I have one?" Such exciting, It makes me feel good.
|Made 14 scones.|
|Apple Cider Vinegar, |
a few pieces of Banana (I only had dehydrated Banana)
and a teaspoon of yeast.
Too easy, and its working already. Yayyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
