Pie Spice Quick Bread


So, I can’t really call this pumpkin spice because there isnt a pumpkin in the building but I took a basic muffin mix this morning and twisted it a bit, and then made a quick bread that actually SMELLS like the Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Bread I baked yesterday. (Yeah, I finally used all the mixes I had bought a while back. But this is easy. I got up at 9 and was putting the bread in the oven before before 10.

I adapted the recipe on page 658 of my New Doubleday Cookbook (I love this sucker!!)

Oh, and the name comes from the Penzey’s spice mixture I used to flavor the bread.

Dry ingredients:

2 cups + 2 tbsp flour

1 tbsp baking powder

3.5 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp pie spice (I went heavy, maybe a heaping tablespoon)

1 tsp salt

Wet ingredients:

1 cup milk

1 egg, beaten until frothy

3 tbsp melted butter

2 tbsp agave syrup or honey

1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a standard loaf pan.

Combine wet ingredients.

Sift dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center.

Add wet ingredients to dry.

Stir to combine. Batter will be thick and should be a bit lumpy.

Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 45 minutes.

I sprinkled the top with a mixture of 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp pie spice. You can do that, or you could make a streusel with 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tbsp flour, 1 tsp spice mixture, and 1-2 tbsp cold butter.

Yes I tried it. It’s not as sweet as Krusteaz but that may be because I use organic sugar or coconut sugar. I’ve found them to be a bit less sweet than white, refined sugar.

If you try it, tell me what you think. Tell me if you adjust it at all too!!
