Things are swiftly turning autumnal in Amsterdam. As the seasons change, so too do my breakfasts. Smoothies and soaked oats shift to hearty porridges and dishes laced with warming spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and the like.
I’ve already mentioned my desire to include veggies in my brekkies – even the sweet ones. Sweet by name and nature, sweet potatoes easily serve this purpose. For this particular loaf, pumpkin would work equally well. Likewise, an apple can happily stand in for the pear.
Make sure your pear/apple isn’t too ripe and juicy or the loaf won’t set as well, though you could try increasing the amount of chia seeds to compensate if that’s the case, since they help to soak up liquid.
