I'm Yammie's husband, Samuel. Yammie wasn't enthusiastic about making this post. She doesn't like the pictures or something, so I decided I would do the post for her. Not just because I love and want to encourage my talented wife, but also because I love and really must promote this amazing bread. It's a different kind of love...
But as you can imagine from the pictures, every bite consists of a warm, soft, mouth-watering experience of dense sweetness. But the taste is not all. It sticks together well, but it doesn't stick on you. I know this, because I've done the ultimate test of carrying pieces around in my backpack all day in a bread bag. Every time I pulled a perfectly intact piece out of my backpack in the train station and took a bite, all the people gazed helplessly at the bread like dogs waiting for crumbs to drop to the ground. Single tears sparkled in the distance when they realize there weren't any crumbs.
The smell is also amazing. I told my friend next to me in class about the pumpkin bread my wife made, and as I pulled it out of my backpack to show him, immediately the room was filled with a warm aroma fit for the season as I heard noses sniffing and felt eyes glancing from all around the classroom to find this source of delight. Anyway, I shared it with a few classmates, but I mostly just ate it myself unconsciously. Turns out that the Germans were unfamiliar with pumpkin bread. So German people especially, you gotta try this one: your compatriots were impressed. They did associate it more with Christmas, though, which makes sense. The spices make it comparable to Lebkuchen. But really don't wait that long to try it!

*My pan was not actually standard sized. Really any pan will work. You just might have to adjust the baking time. As long as you cook it until a toothpick comes out clean, it should be fine.
