All normal people put butter on banana bread.

Not as hard to resist snitching the extras from the freezer.

I think the brownie recipe is low fat/high fiber rather than low sugar, which is still a good thing. When I make pumpkin pie my filling is always shorted a little because I like to eat the pumpkin straight from the can. After I add the sugar and spice and everything nice it no longer appeals to me.

Well, then, I'm related to a lot of abnormal people...but I already knew that! My BIL asked his wife why she puts butter on nut bread because there's so much butter in it to begin with. She just said "Try it!" He did, and now he eats butter on it!

In the interest of science, I had a sliver of the sugar free pumpkin pie after it had chilled in the refrigerator and the spices mingled with the filling, I didn't miss the sugar at all with that piece.

Maybe I'll dedicate my life to scientific research!
Unless you grow your own over here pumpkins are only available at hallowe'en and are tasteless and woolly and only fit for lanterns so I thank my lucky stars that I discovered Libby's canned pumpkin puree. It goes into so many things both sweet and savoury.

Im going to be making chocolate peanut butter torte Yummy An Oreo crust (again), a peanut butter mousse with chopped peanuts and chocolate chips, all topped with a chocolate ganache and chopped peanuts. Totally adore this recipe.

With some blackberry compote made by my mom's cousin in Maine.
Please to share recipe?

BTW Bakewell Cream is Disodium pyrophosphate. It comes in a "baking powder" version as well that includes baking soda. It is exactly the same ingredients as Argo baking powder.

For some odd reason all the grocery stores I've visited so far carry only aluminum based baking powder. Quite discouraging. Not so much as a can of Rumford, which has been around for decades at least. I can get almost 5 lbs of the Argo at Sam's Club - but what the heck would I do with that much baking powder????

I have never met anyone who puts butter on any quick desert bread. I've never even heard of anyone doing that. Maybe it's a regional thing ...

I used the recipe from the can of bakewell cream! Made no changes to it.
