I'm so delinquent on posting, it's ridiculous. I don't even actually remember now when I made this pumpkin bread. It was definitely a Friday. Not last Friday ... Maybe the Friday before? I really have no idea. If I gave it enough thought I could probably figure it out, but I won't bother. What I do know is that before I actually got around to using this mix, it had been sitting in the cupboard for probably almost two years. Can pumpkin bread mix go bad?
It was a gift, and it was one of those things that I never bothered to actually make because I figured it would keep and I'm always scouring the Internet for all sorts of other tasty and fun dessert recipes so this always managed to fall by the wayside. Needless to say, since it came into our house before I was concerned about veganism it isn't an entirely vegan mix - the dry mix itself had buttermilk. But I did go about veganizing the rest of the recipe by making using vegan substitutions for the add-ins. And I think it came out quite tasty indeed. Especially warmed in the microwave and with a little Earth Balance spread on top ... Yum! This definitely became both dessert and breakfast for a few days straight. Maybe I'm a pumpkin bread convert now ... Which means I'll have to go back to the Internets to scrounge up a vegan version of this fall treat. Not a bad homework assignment.
