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.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
