Pumpkin Bread

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Rain is pounding on the roof and the sun porch, darkness has invaded our evenings until daylight savings time comes to play. And since I received a request, the only thing left to do was bake. Tonight I am making pumpkin bread, from "The Wooden Spoon Bread Book". I have used this book time and time again through the years.

the intro:  Some of my friends take a pumpkin from the field and cook it themselves. Starting from scratch definitely has it's virtues, but I personally make pumpkin bread with canned pumpkin. This is where I prefer for someone else to do part of the work.

(additional thoughts, canned pumpkin is great to be able to make this wonderful bread, long after fall is gone.)

3 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c sugar
2 t baking powder
2 t baking soda
2 t salt
2 t cinnamon
1/2 t each nutmeg, ginger
1/4 t cloves

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients, whisk to mix well. Set aside.

2/3 c oil
2/3 c molasses
4 eggs
2 c canned pumpkin

In a large bowl, combine wet ingredients, beat well.

Mix dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.

 Divide between 2 loaf pans, bake 1 hour, or until tests done in your oven. Let cool 10 - 15 minutes, turn out to cook completely.

Wrap and store for 24 hours before serving.

  1. Pumpkin is certainly an ingredient on everyone's mind (and taste buds!) lately. I just made a pretty darn good pumpkin cream cheese bars recipe that was super simple.

  2. I'm so very happy for you, beautiful rings,, I agree canned pumpkin is so much better for breads and pies,,

  3. Great looking pumpkin bread, Melynda. I would have to make the pumpkin puree from scratch since canned pumpkin is not available here. But looks like this would be worth the effort.

    You must be getting so excited with the big day now so close. I hope you have a wonderful day :-)
