Nothing says fall like some pumpkin spice, right? I was sitting at Starbucks the other day enjoying my Chai Tea latte with a little pumpkin spice flavoring, and the thought struck me that I would love to have some pumpkin spice bread! With that delicious thought in mind, I did a little scouring on the net and stumbled across this awesome and simple recipe from food.com.
Here’s what you will need
2 cups canned pumpkin
3 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 cup vegetable oil
3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Heat oven to 350.
in a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, water, vegetable oil and eggs.
Beat until well mixed.
Measure the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, nutmeg and cloves into a separate bowl and stir until combined.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, beating until smooth.
Grease two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans and dust with flour.
Evenly divide the batter between the two pans.
Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool for 10-15 minutes, then remove from pans by inverting onto a rack and tapping the bottoms.
Slice and serve plain, buttered, or with cream cheese (cream cheese is the AAAAAmazing on it- FYI)
And here are the instructions:
