Vegan Pumpkin Spice Tea Loaf

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Tea Loaf Posted on 22/10/20181 Comment
Ahoy, hello! My name is Jenny. I am a thirty-something human female from Manchester in the north of England. I enjoy rainy days and sad songs, custard donuts and salt & pepper chips and beer, lentil dhal and fried okra, X-Files and Twin Peaks, fierce fat heroines and mental health advocates, dogs and cats and otters and a very special beirdo. To paraphrase Sylvia Plath: "I blog because there is a voice within me that insists on writing lots of ridiculous chuff".

It is truly the season of the tea loaf. Perfect alone or with a cup of tea (or coffee), perfect for breakfast or elevenses or lunch or supper. Perfect as it comes or slathered with a wee bit of vegan butter. The tea loaf conquers all!

This version is perfect for the month of October, and whether you roast your pumpkin or buy it in a can, it matters not my friends. Either way, the tea loaf conquers all.

  1. I love any kind of bake that looks like it would go excellently with a cup of tea, and this fits the bill entirely. Happy Hallowe’en to my tastebuds, I say.
