As an ode to everything Fall, I made some Pumpkin Bread to assist me to get into the mood of the upcoming season. Yum, Yum, Yum. I thoroughly enjoyed eating this treat during breakfast with my morning coffee.
I found the original recipe at A Subtle Revelry. She also shares a really cool way to write on bread, so check it out.
1-2/3 cup flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp of each: nutmeg, ground cloves, pumpkin pie spice & cinnamon
2 beaten eggs
1 can of pumpkin
3/4 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a bread pan.
In one bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking soda and powder and all of the spices.
In another bowl, mix the eggs, pumpkin, vegetable oil, sugar and water.
Once each set is mixed separately, combine and mix to blend together. Pour your batter into your baking pan. Pop it in the oven for about 1 hour. Do the toothpick test and if comes out clean, you are set. Let it cool for about a half hour before transferring to a cooling rack.
It is mighty tasty when it is slightly warm. We finished this loaf in about 3 days (don't judge, it was just too good not to eat! :P) and it was just as moist on the third day - a sign of a good bread, I believe. Enjoy & Welcome FALL! :)
