Pumpkin Spice Bread

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
  • 4 eggs
  • 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

  • And here are the instructions:

  • 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)

  • Do you have any favorite fall recipes? I’m thinking something involving apples will be my next feat!

    1. That sounds positively divine! I have not yet found any canned pumpkin here in Germany (and I have been looking), and I am missing it so badly it hurts! And, I would swear to you that every single thing I look at on the internet is now featuring pumpkin this or pumpkin spice that… Killing me, I tell you, killing me! :-)

    2. Amber,

      Is it strange that I can actually smell the bread as I look at the picture? ;-)

      Even more strange, my sister in law baked a loaf last night! Seems this little treat is on many minds. I can hardly believe Fall is upon us; not that I am sad to see this miserable heat and humidity go, but I am not quite sure I am ready for it. The holidays, while fun, can be daunting and overwhelming. I better start preparing, though, right? ;-)

      A lovely recipe, thank you for sharing!
