Bubble buns are a bit like cinnamon rolls in a more fun form. I love to pull apart the little round bread balls. This weekend I set about making a pumpkin version of cinnamon bubble buns.

Soft cinnamon pumpkin bread coated with glaze. These make an nice, indulgent weekend breakfast treat perfect for the Fall.

A few people made their way to my blog this week through a link to some pumpkin snickerdoodles I made last year. This really had me craving them.

On the outside the look like regular snickerdoodles, but on the inside they are a nice golden orange.

I really enjoyed the recipe I tried out last year, but I wanted to create one that uses shortening, which I’ve read is what causes the crackling top for snickerdoodles.

Pumpkin Bread

For me, Fall baking is never complete without several loaves of pumpkin bread. Over the years, I’ve tried many recipes, but this one remains my favorite. Last year, I picked up this Nordic Ware Pumpkin Loaf PanI had been wanting for quite a while. Lucky for me, I got it while it was on sale.

This loaf pan makes cakes, breads, look so much more festive with the pumpkin vines design. I plan on using it a few more times during this pumpkin baking season, but here is the debut.
