Everyone around me has been talking about pumpkin, so Pumpkin Bread it is! I usually use the recipe from The St. Johns cookbook, but since it is packed I found a great recipe from My Baking Addiction. Enjoy and let fall begin!
Makes: 2 loaves, Prep: 20 minutes, Bake: 60-90 min
1 can (15oz) pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cups water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
2 tablespoons pumpkin spice **
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease loaf pans that you choose to use.
2. In a standing mixer with paddle attachment, mix pumpkin, oil, eggs, water, vanilla and sugar.
3. In a separate bowl whisk together flour baking soda, salt and pumpkin spice. Add to mixture until just blended and pour in to prepared pans.
4. Bake for 60-90 minutes.
** You can buy pumpkin spice or you can make your own: 3 tablespoons cinnamon, 2 teaspoons ground ginger, 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg, 1 1/2 teaspoons cloves, and 1 1/2 teaspoons allspice. Mix well and store in a spice container.
