As a Good Cook Kitchen Expert, I get to try out some fun Good Cook products to whip up some awesomeness in the kitchen. Well…next Monday night (11/24) at 6 pm ET, Good Cook, TheFrugalMom, and other Good Cook Kitchen Experts (myself included!) will be hosting The Ultimate Thanksgiving Twitter Party (hashtag #Thanksgivingtips).
I would love it if you would join us as we talk about everything Thanksgiving from turkey prep to decorating the table. Plus get a chance to win a special gift and one of three $200 Thanksgiving Baskets that will arrive in time for your dinner. The Thanksgiving Baskets are AMAZING…you really want to try to win one!
Be among the first 500 to RSVP for the Twitter Party by November 23, 2013 and receive a free set of Turkey Lifters
In the meantime, I had the chance to try out some Good Cook bakeware to try my hand at making something pumpkin. I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin myself (although my husband loves it), so I’m not very experienced with pumpkin recipes. I decided to go easy and try Pumpkin Bread in the mini loaf pan that Good Cook sent to me.
But first, I wanted to try out the Good Cook Pumpkin Scoop (available at Walmart) on a pumpkin that I had left over from a school project. I cut the pumpkin in half, and used the scoop to get all the seeds and gunk out of the pumpkin. It was super easy…and then I roasted my pumpkin seeds. I just washed the seeds, mixed with 2 tbsp of melted butter and salt and roasted at 350 for about 45 minutes. They turned out yummy!
Next up was pumpkin bread. I didn’t have time to cook and puree my pumpkin, so I cheated with some canned pumpkin. As soon as the bread cooled, my husband tried it and gave his seal of approval.
Glazed Pumpkin Mini-Loaf Bread
- 1 1/2 cups Flour
- 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1 cup Canned Pumpkin (about 1/2 a 15 oz. can)
- 1/2 cup Olive Oil
- 2 Eggs
- 1/4 cup Water
- 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. Allspice
- 1/2 cup Chopped Walnuts
- 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
- 1 tbsp. Milk
Mix the flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda. Then add the pumpkin, oil, eggs, water, and spices and mix together. Once it’s mixed, add the nuts and pour into 2 Good Cook Mini Loaf pans (5″ x 3″). Bake at 350 for about 40 to 50 minutes. Check the middle of the loaf with a toothpick to ensure it’s done. While the loaf is still warm, mix up the glaze and add it to the top of the loaf.
