Cranberry Pumpkin Tea Bread



Tried this tea bread with the balance of pumpkin after cooking pumpkin rice.  The squash helps the loaf stay deliciously moist and the cinnamon blends well with the pumpkin flavour.







Yummy ....... easy to make, yet easier to eat

  1. That looks very moist and healthy. I would definitely love that. But if I make I'll leave out the cinnamon cos my family dislike it. Thanks for sharing

    Yup, some people dislike cinnamon, I wasn't up to it before, but after reading about the goodness of cinnamon, I've grown to like it,bit by bit. It's supposed to lower cholesterol.

    I just ransacked my fridge and found cranberries and sultanas, so decided to try out with cranberries. Didn't regret though!

  4. Looks moist, I bet the slightly sour taste of the cranberry adds a nice balance to the sweetness of the bread, and richness of the pumpkin purée.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
