Michael's M&M'S Pumpkin Bread
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the loaf pan by spraying with cooking spray then pressing a piece of parchment paper in to the bottom. Spray the parchment.
1 1/2 cups Flour
1 1/4 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Clove
1 1/2 cups Pumpkin Puree
1 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Buttermilk
2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter (melted)
1/2 cup Milk Chocolate M&M'S® (plus more for garnish)
Sift together the flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, brown sugar, buttermilk, egg and butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined. Fold in 1/2 cup of M&M'S® then pour in to your prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. Add an additional 1 minute if center is too soft. Remove from oven and let sit for 30 minutes.
Remove from pan and take off parchment. Allow to sit until fully cooled at room temperature. Slice and serve with a dollop of whipped cream and garnish with Milk Chocolate M&M'S®.
1. The buttermilk helps to cut through the sweetness by adding a little tartness.
