Angie's Pumpkin Yeast Bread and Mary's Zucchini Muffins

Pumpkin Yeast Bread
Made this delicious, soft bread a couple of weeks ago but never got round to post it! This recipe is from Angie's Recipes, as many of you already know, Angie's breads are all outrageously gorgeous, stunning, simply beautiful to look at. When I saw this pumpkin bread made by Angie, I simply got to try it. I followed the recipe exactly as given, except that I use instant yeast instead of fresh yeast. Angie advised to use about 7gm  of instant yeast. The result is a beautiful loaf of such gorgeous colour. I eat it plain with lots of butter and toasted it the next day spread with butter and jam. For the full recipe and beautiful pictures, please visit Angie's Recipe ~ Pumpkin Yeast Bread.

Zucchini Muffin
This recipe is from Mary at One Perfect Bite. I have seen many recipes using zucchini back in September, that I simply have got to try at least one. Zucchini is not a common everyday veggie over here in Malaysia. I have never tried zucchini before, even though I have seen them in TESCO.  There are lots of delicious zucchini recipes from so many of you, that I couldn't make up my mind which one to try! I finally chose this muffin from Mary who got it from King Arthur Flour.  It took me two whole weeks to find a zucchini! The morning market which I go to for my daily veggies does not sell zucchini. The only supermarket I found selling this is TESCO, but on two occasions that I went, the zucchini really have seen better days! They are not fresh and already starting to go soft. I finally found a very nice firm zucchini on one of my grocery shopping trips there. Bought it and made this muffin on that very day. These muffins are wonderful, they are really moist, soft and delicious. The only changes I did was to reduce the sugar to 140gm instead of 1 cup as indicated, but that's just my preference. For the full recipe, please visit Mary at One Perfect Bite ~ Zucchini Muffin.

  15. Hi Angie,
    Thank you for this fabulous recipie!

    Hi scrambledhenfruit,
    Thank you! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  16. I love that you prepared a pumpkin bread that wasn't a quick bread. Don't get me wrong - I love the ease and immediacy of a quick bread, but I love the idea of trying pumpkin in something a bit lighter that requires more time, love, and cultivation... Gotta try it, thanks for sharing all of these!

  17. They both look like they came out perfectly :)
