Impromptu Pumpkin Bread

I maintain that baking is the most simple, satisfying, inexpensive, and comforting activity ever. This Sunday morning, I got up and realized I had half a can of pumpkin pie mix to do something with. Without even leaving the apartment to buy extra ingredients, I found a recipe, veganized it, and am now enjoying awesome pumpkin bread!

The original recipe is here: Pumpkin Breads (would reproduce their title here, but it’s grammatically incorrect. “Anyway You Like It”? Really?)

To veganize, use this metric that I just learned: For one egg, replace with 1/4 cup of applesauce and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder. I didn’t add anything into the bread, but did crush some almonds for the top, which I would definitely recommend. Also, if you don’t have pre-mixed “pumpkin pie spice” you can always add, as I did, dashes of any or all of: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and allspice.
