Nothing says Thanksgiving to me like the smell of sage! (Am I alone?) It's my favorite herb for the occasion and I add it to everything from stuffing to roasted sweet potatoes. As I was thinking of how to use the last of my pumpkin purée, I knew sage had to be included into the last pumpkin recipe of the season.
The bread is moist, filled with lots of pumpkin and has a nutty brown butter flavor. You know brown butter enhances flavors and in this bread it was the star. The sage renders a very homey and slight savory hint to the bread. Feel free to increase the amount of sage if you like a stronger flavor. This brown butter pumpkin sage bread will be perfect for Thanksgiving morning or a lazy weekend brunch. Add a cup of coffee (or tea in my case) to enjoy a crisp fall morning. Wait in these part of the world, a brisk winter morning I suppose.
The last can of pumpkin puree is now gone and it's time to start my holiday baking. I've been hanging onto fall and all its warm spices to the last thread. Of course, that means I am a gazillion years behind in blogging years and Pinterest as by now everyone is done with peppermint! But that's the beauty of life, I am almost never in vogue. Cue the gingerbread, molasses, eggnog, cranberries and peppermint please!
