Week 37: Pan à L’ancienne

Week 38: Casatiello bread (take two)

Week 38 bonus: Pumpkin cinnamon pull apart bread

Week 39: Lembas Bread


We found this recipe and could not resist- these were more like pancakes/biscuits/cookies all in one, but delicious- and how can one resist the chance to make elfin bread 😉

Week 39 bonus: Pumpkin chocolate chip bread


This was a very tasty version of a breakfast bread- I cut back quite a bit on the sugar and it was still plenty sweet.

Week 40: Pumpkin Soft Pretzels


These are a staple in our house during the fall. Pumpkin and soft pretzels all in one- they make a great after work snack before dinner.

Week 41: Kaiser rolls (with egg)


Tried again with the kaiser rolls, I still don’t have the malt syrup that the recipe calls for, but they came out much better with the eggs than the vegan version did- some things just aren’t the same without eggs.

Week 42: Pumpkin Garlic Rolls (no picture sorry)

You’re about to be sensing a theme- we made A LOT of pumpkin things, several of which were breads- I made these out of a pumpkin pizza dough recipe and they were like soft pillow-y dinner rolls- very yummy.

Week 43: Pumpkin Biscuits (I am clearly a picture slacker…)

Needed biscuits for breakfast egg sandwiches- there were pretty tasty (but they accidentally got made too thin)

Week 44: Pumpkin Yeast Bread


This bread was very versatile- we used it to make PB&J and grilled cheese, and french toast and garlic toast with dinner.  It was very soft and yummy.

Week 45: Kale cheese Breadsticks


If there is anything in our house that we have more of than pumpkin, it is kale- so when i found this quick bread stick recipe I had to try it- yummy.

Week 46: Pumpkin raisin bagels


These are like cinnamon raisin bagels, but with pumpkin in the dough as well- they are VERY yummy with peanut butter and pumpkin butter in the morning for breakfast. (Only thing I would change is that I would make them a bit larger)

6 breads left to lose out the year- stay tuned…

* Unless otherwise noted/linked up, all of my bread recipes come from the Bread Baker’s Apprentice Book, which I would highly recommend.






Tammy says:

So… did you do it? 52? I think it’s amazing that you tried.

Yep- I’ve got one more to make and then will update with a final post- probably around this time next week 🙂 I think I only missed one or two weeks, but made up for them with some of the double weeks…
