OK so ... Note To Self: try out your food every time before clicking 'Publish Post'. My pumpkin bread endeavor was a complete and epic failure! Not sure what went wrong, as I followed the measurements and instructions to a T (except of course for my spice and vanilla modifications which shouldn't affect the consistency of the recipe). I'm so upset!
I pulled the loaves from the oven and let them cool. I sliced into the regular loaf and found that it wasn't at all what bread should look like. It was almost like a pudding; very soft and tacky on the inside, though the outside was perfectly cooked and a little crispy. Kevin said it was like bread with a pumpkin pie filling. The flavor was great; but the texture was a total failure. What a let down. I let it bake for the recommended time at the recommended temperature, and the toothpick came out clean on both loaves. I even cut into the bundt and it was just the same (I thought maybe since it was smaller it might have been done, but ... nope).
Is it the recipe? Is it the weather? ... Is it me?
I suppose not every kitchen endeavor is a roaring success (at least not every one of MY kitchen endeavors). I will simply have another go at it and see how it turns out.
