Starbucks Pumpkin Bread

This pumpkin bread tastes exactly like the one from Starbucks! This bread is so moist and easy to make, it will be my new go-to breakfast!

Starbucks Pumpkin Bread


I am always so late in the game.

As soon as the Christmas coffee cups come out, I finally start baking with pumpkin. Maybe because there are finally pumpkin on the shelves (unfair, right?). But it might also be that now that Halloween is over, pumpkin seems to have disappeared and everyone is trying to shove Christmas down your throat.

I want pumpkin back!



Starbucks Pumpkin Bread


I actually made this bread for one of my student's birthday. As soon as I brought the bread out, students swarmed from all around, phones out to take pictures of the bread to snapchat, tweet or whatever these crazy kids do nowadays.

^^Seriously is one of the benefits of all students having a phone on their person. Making the teacher feel special when we do something nice. Maybe I should bake them something whenever there is a test day so they don't hate me as much.


Starbucks Pumpkin Bread


This bread came about when I realize that I have been spending more money on Starbucks than I am on actual groceries.

I really wish that wasn't so close to the truth.

So instead of spending close to $3 on a slice of bread from Starbucks, I decided to try to make it myself. And after many attempts, and different recipes, I finally found the one that matches it the closest. Just in time for them to be kicked out of Starbucks in favor of more Christmas-like desserts.

Now let me eat 3 more slices please and thank you.
