Maple Pumpkin Bread


I made a terrible mistake... I bet you had already spotted it. Yes, the pumpkin seeds! I used to throw away the pumpkin seeds until recently I was told by Jess (from Jess kitchen) that the seeds were edible! I purposely bought a pumpkin this week to bake this bread & even washed the seeds a few times to ensure they were clean before I added them to my bread dough ;P

I'm such a muddlehead ;P I only realized my mistake when I sliced my bread. I was mumbling to myself, wondering why the seeds were super hard when sliced. Opps, I should have shelled the seeds before adding to my dough earlier on! ;P


I love the colour & softness of the bread. However, sad to say that I have to slice off the sides of the bread before eating. Oh well, mistakes do happen in kitchen at times. At least I had learned my lesson today & will not repeat it in future ;P

Do hop over to Min's Blog for the recipe & take a look at her pretty bread loaf.

P/s: I had replaced honey with maple syrup.

Lena,
I supposed I should have washed the seeds & roasted slightly in oven. After they are 'dried', then deshell them.
