Jessie Oleson (aka Cakespy) drops by every week to share a delicious dessert recipe. —The Mgmt.
Around this time of year, pumpkin begins a period of proliferation that lasts until Thanksgiving. The cooler weather is good for gourd-eating, as pumpkin lends a cozy heartiness to baked goods of all types, including one of my personal favorites, pumpkin bread.
While pumpkin bread is wonderful in its simplicity, it is possible to heighten your seasonal eating by adding a healthy helping of chocolate chip cookie dough to the batter. It gives the bread a decadently gooey center, and the spiciness of the pumpkin bread works beautifully with the brown sugar and chocolate in the cookies. Feel like gilding the lily? Go ahead, serve it with ice cream.
