Pumpkin Bread


Look at his intense focus. Benny takes his pumpkin bread very seriously.

Thursday, October 29, 2009



We stopped and got the pugs a loaf of pumpkin bread last weekend as a little treat. Despite what they might tell you, one loaf will give the pugs treats for about a week and that includes some snacking on our part as well. The hardest part about getting a loaf of pumpkin bread is finding a place to store it. No matter where we stash the bread, Benny will sniff it out and whine and scratch like a mad man once he finds it.

One day, I would love to just come home with a loaf of pumpkin bread, unwrap it and sit it in front of Benny and just see what he does. But, I would never do that because I know exactly what he would do. He would eat the entire thing in one sitting! And then I am pretty sure I would spend the rest of the evening cleaning up after him. The thought of the aftermath makes all the whining and scratching seem pretty bearable.

Pugkin Bread Pupcakes

Pugkin Bread for the Pugs

Ann was gracious enough to bake a whole bag of pugkin bread pupcakes for the pugs (Ann's recipe). The pugs just loved that the pupcakes were their very own serving!

If you are wondering why Sol's napkin is further back than Benjamin, Henry & Luna's that's because two seconds earlier she pulled this stunt.

Baby Benny’s Pugkin Bread Recipe

Benjamin, Henry & Luna waiting to eat pugkin bread

Ann was kind enough to send over her pugkin bread recipe for me to share.  So without further ado, here it is!

  • ½ c. unbleached all purpose flour
  • ½ c. whole wheat flour
  • ½ c. buckwheat flour
  • ½ c. old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • ¼ t. salt
  • ¼ t. nutmeg
  • ¼ t. ginger
  • 1 can pumpkin
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 T. flaxseed
  • 2 T. wheat germ
  • ½ c. milk
  • 2 T. plain yogurt
  • ¾ c. unsweetened applesauce

Blend ingredients and spoon into prepared (greased and floured) pans.  I use three small loaf pans…or you can use one large loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.  Cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, then remove loafs to a rack and cool completely.  Serves three hungry pugs….or one Benny.

Note:  This is a very flexible recipe…you can add or subtract here and there to suit the tastes and food sensibilities of your pugs.  If they have allergies to milk or eggs, for example, add more applesauce to moisten the recipe.  I sometimes add a little more oatmeal (love that fiber!), adding just a touch more yogurt or milk for additional liquids.  Oh, and if the pugs will share, this is perfectly suitable for humans, particularly if you are trying to cut down on sugar in your diet.  One more note…I make my own applesauce for this recipe, and I make it using unpeeled apples.  More fiber and vitamins to boot!

Pugkin Bread from Ann

Pugkin Bread from Ann

When we arrived at the Sock Hop, Ann greeted us with a very special bag.  The bag had a loaf of pugkin bread for each one of the pugs!  When we got home from the Sock Hop on Saturday night Benjamin was very anxious to get a piece of Ann’s special pugkin bread.  So we set them up in the living room each with their own loaf.  The silly pugs thought I was going to let them eat the whole thing!  I snapped a few pictures and then we broke off a few pieces for them.  We did the same thing on Sunday and Monday night too!  The pugs are in heaven!  The best thing is the pugkin bread is very diet friendly for the pugs.  It is made with whole wheat flour and uses applesauce instead of sugar.

Thank you, Ann!  You are so very kind and thoughtful!

It ain’t pumpkin bread, but it’ll do

Benjamin, Henry & Luna waiting for a piece of blueberry bread

By now I think everyone knows that Benjamin has a thing for pumpkin bread.  So when it isn’t Fall, Benjamin is sad because there is no pumpkin bread.  Well, fear not!  I think we have found a possible replacement to get him through Spring and Summer - blueberry bread.  Blueberry bread is the latest bread choice at Bob Evans and we have been bringing some home to the pugs.  They most definitely like it.  They don’t love it as much as pumpkin bread, but it is definitely a good second choice.

On a side note, when I take photos where I put the bread on the glass table and have the pugs wait until I snap the photo, Luna always cracks me up.  She always sticks her head underneath the glass and tries to smell and lick the bread.  Guess she is learning about a little thing called the “glass ceiling.”
