Pumpkin Spice Bread

October 20, 2011

Well it is the season after all, so why not cook up some pumpkin flavoured goodies? Today I made this recipe of pumpkin spice bread and it was easy, fast, and flavourful. I made a few modifications from the original recipe which comes from this cool blog called, “From Zoup to Nuts“. Check it out…but keep coming back to my site ok? 😉

And while we’re on the topic…of Halloween that is…Simone’s declared that she is going to be a ‘fairy princess ballerina butterfly’ again this year. I have no idea what this is exactly, but am sure it involves a lot of glitter and shiny accessories.

Pumpkin Spice Bread

3 cups sugar

1 cup veg oil (I did 1/2 veg oil and 1/2 cup molasses)

4 eggs

1 can (160z) solid pack pumpkin

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour (I did half whole wheat)

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp ground clover

1/2 tsp ground all spice

1/2 cup water

Directions:

1. Mix together sugar, oil, and eggs then add pumpkin and mix well.

2. Combine dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and mix using a whisk.

3. Add dry to liquid and pumpkin mixture, alternating with water.

4. Pour into TWO greased loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes.

5. Cool in pans 10 mins before removing to wire rack. I was too excited and lost the bottom of one loaf because I have yet to learn how to be patient.  😦

The loaf turns out delicious, but I can’t help but think, “wow, wouldn’t this be even MORE delicious with an icing on top.” I know, totally makes it even more unhealthy (already there’s 3 cups of sugar) but I was thinking if you did these in a muffin tin you could add some icing and make pumpkin cupcakes.

For an easy cream cheese icing I suggest trying the one I use on my delicious carrot cake that I make every Thanksgiving.

Enjoy!

    Makes 24 mini muffins and 24 regular size muffins from one batch. Mini muffins about 18 mins in the oven. Regular are still in. I am thinking 20 mins.

    Hey, I meant to thank you for the link back to my blog and the Pumpkin Spice Bread recipe. Glad you liked it. I found it pretty addicting!!! I like your recipe alterations, too. Might have to try it that way next time I bake it. Take care.
