Pumpkin Bread

Fresh pumpkin purchased from the big red barn we visited on Saturday.My favorite way to cook fresh pumpkin is in the pressure cooker.

The insides are so easy to scoop out and mash with a fork or potato masher.

And the flavored water, used in the pressure cooker, is perfect to cook with. I sometimes add powdered milk to the water before adding it to my recipe.

The house smelled wonderful while the bread was baking.

We like eating pumpkin bread with ice cold milk or hot tea.

After taking a closer look.. yes, my pumpkins were much bigger so I shouldn't complain about the price... big enough I had to cut them in half, then the half in half and then half again and only one would fit in the large pressure..
What kind of baking pans are those? They look like earth ware or terracotta?.. real neat looking.
