Pumpkin Bread and Sweet or savory butters

Pumpkin Bread

1 3/4 cup pumpkin puree

1 cup melted butter
3/4 cup water
4 eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 1/2 cups flour
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins

Mix together the first 4 ingredients. blend in the remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased and floured bread pan and bake 1 hour at 350F.

Faerie Butter

Warning raw egg

4 egg yolks
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons orange flower water
2 sticks of butter, soften

Beat the sugar and yolks together, blend in the water and butter. Force through a cookie press and serve.

Whipped Herb Butter

2 stick unsalted butter, softened
4-6 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, flowers, seeds
salt and pepper to taste
dry mustard or paprika to taste

Cream butter until fluffy and light. Chop herbs very fine, blend into butter. spoon into wax paper and roll up in 1/2 in diameter. refrigerate and cut into slices.

I will be using thyme, parsley and sage for the potato bread.

By the way, here are some Kitchen Aid coupons available if you are looking for a new mixer.

That is delicious! If I have time to stop at the store on my way to my house, I’ll have to pick up a pumpkin. I will try this at home. We own a Wall Mirrors ecommerce site and are always looking for great content to share and help inspire. Thanks.
