Pumpkin Raisin Loaf & Pumpkin Dip

I ran into Starbuck's for a gift certificate, and also got a slice of pumpkin bread for the girls to share because it looked like the healthiest thing available. Liv & Abi haven't eaten pumpkin before so I was a little surprised that both girls devoured the bread. I can make that, I thought to myself. Well, I could if I had a recipe! :o) I was pleased to find this one in The Everyday Vegan by Dreena Burton. I had all the ingredients and I followed the recipe exactly, using golden raisins and vanilla soy milk. The bread was perfect! The girls liked it as much...maybe more than the Starbuck's bread! I did too.


There was some pumpkin left over from the loaf, and recently I received some recipes from Catherine to test for her cookbook, one of which uses a smallish amount of pumpkin. Perfect! I used the balance of the pumpkin to create this yummy pumpkin dip to go along with some pears & apples. Catherine is right, kids love to dip things, and double-dip, and I even saw some triple-dipping today! Dipping the fruit was a big hit for the kids, but my personal favorite was something slightly different......




I know what you're thinking, and you're absolutely right. The pumpkin dip was amazingly delicious spread on top of the pumpkin bread! They complimented each other perfectly. Thanks for letting me try out your recipe, Catherine!
