Sweet and Savory Pumpkin Pull Apart Bread is a cozy addition to any holiday meal. This Pumpkin Bread Recipe even makes wonderful edible gifts this season!
I like a good challenge.
That’s why I married Lt. Dan. Wait, I mean… Never mind.
What I meant to say was that’s why I love baking. It gives me a chance to experiment and try new flavor combinations that are unexpected.
McCormick understands the exhilaration of a good challenge.
This year McCormick Gourmet is hosting a festive Go 4 Gourmet Contest through the holidays, for all cooks alike. I’m entering a favorite pumpkin bread recipe, Pumpkin Pull Apart Bread.
The current challenge is to create something bold and new with:
- Sea Salt
- and Almonds
In order to create something truly unique, I combined pumpkin, cinnamon, and brown sugar with marcona almonds and McCormick Mediterranean Salt Salt, loaded with herbs and spices.
Then I nestled all these flavors in between tender folds of soft pull apart bread.
This sweet and strikingly savory combination, is a vibrant way to accentuate the essence of the pumpkin bread recipe.
The marcona almonds not only act as a crunchy little bonus between layers, they help keep the layers from fusing together while baking.
I started with my moist yeasty pumpkin bread recipe. Then after the dough had time to rise, I rolled it out into two large rectangles, and sprinkled it with all the sweet and savory toppings.
Then I cut it into smaller pieces to layer in the bread pans.
The layers rise and fill the bread pans, creating a sticky sweet and savory pull apart bread that could be served on any holiday table.
It also makes wonderful edible gifts! just find cute ceramic bread pans you want to include as a gift and bake away!
I hope I win!
The prizes include a $1000 Gourmet Pantry Refresh Prize Package.
…But if I don’t win, I hope YOU do!
You still have time to enter McCormick’s Go 4 Gourmet Challenge. Link over to submit your creative recipe.
And there’s comfort in knowing, if neither of us win, we can at least enjoy a tender slice or two of this savory-sweet pumpkin bread recipe.
That’s a pretty good consolation prize.
