Ok, half kidding.
But you totally know it’s true. I’m a total internet lady myself, so you can bet I hopped in line for my pumpkin spice latte first chance I got this week. 🙂
So if you’re feeling pumpkin crazy, I have a suggestion. Make this bread. I don’t get anything if you do. I’m just saying, it’s tasty and could easily find it’s way on to a breakfast plate or beside your afternoon coffee. I mean, pumpkin AND chocolate? Yum!
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons greek yogurt
We’re going to be mixing things, and then dividing them so we can get that pretty marbled look. Don’t fret, it’ll all work out in the end.
In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Remove half of the mixture to another bowl (yes, a third bowl), and to this add the cocoa. Now divide the butter mixture in half between these two bowls. Add 1/4 cup pumpkin puree and a tablespoon of greek yogurt to each. Stir until just combined.
Add the batter to a buttered loaf pan in large spoonfuls, dispersing the two colors throughout. Then use a knife to swirl the batter around.
Bake at 325°F for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before removing it from the pan.
No? That got a little goofy at the end? Yeah, ok. I can see that now.
