Pumpkin Soda Bread with Honey Cinnamon Butter

Serve this delicious bread straight from the oven and smother with this amazing honey cinnamon butter!

Irish Soda Bread is one of my favorite St. Patty's Day treats so why not combine it with pumpkin to make a fall-time treat! It's biscuit like texture mixed with the melted cinnamon butter makes a perfect accompaniment to your next fall dinner party! I made this with a soul-warming french onion pot roast and it was the perfect pairing!

Start by gathering your ingredients and pre-heating the oven to 400*. Use a baking sheet or cast-iron pan covered in parchment to bake up your bread.

Next, mix up your wet ingredients. Pumpkin puree, egg yolk and buttermilk. I didn't have buttermilk on hand so I used regular milk mixed with vinegar to curdle the milk.

Then mix together the dry ingredients. Flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar (omit if you want a savory bread). Cut in your butter to make pea-sized pieces in your flour mixture. Add in your raisins (dried cranberries would also be delicious!).

Add your wet ingredients to the flour mixture. Slightly mix before turning out to a floured work surface. Finish gently mixing on your counter and form a round.

I added some kitchen twine to create pumpkin-like creases in my dough. (Or you can just cut 4 slits in the top of your dough.) Transfer your dough to a cast iron skillet covered in parchment paper and tie up your strings. Glaze top with egg whites. Pop in the oven for about 40 minutes.

While your bread is baking, mix up your butter. Whip 1/2 cup softened butter along with a tsp of cinnamon and a Tb of honey. Yum!!

Cool your bread slightly before transferring to your serving plate. Cut your twine off, if used. I added a cinnamon stick as a stem.

Serve with a generous amount of honey cinnamon butter!!
