Pumpkin Bread

So, I know we just posted banana bread, but nothing says fall is here more than pumpkins! And this pumpkin bread will have your whole house smelling festive, yummy and “fall” like. I am eating a piece as I am typing this…slathered in butter, ( I think Paula Deen and I could be best friends) and it is pure heaven. This is the kind of pumpkin bread that is rich in spice, so the pumpkin flavor really jumps out at you. And for all you followers who are here locally, (Mesa, AZ) I will be selling these at my Open House TOMORROW. My House. 10 am. Come and get some before they are gone! And for those of you that live far, far away, I feel sorry for you…. and here is the recipe.

Pumpkin Bread

  • 2 3/4 c. flour
  • 3 c. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. allspice
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 c. pumpkin (fresh or canned)
  • 2 sticks butter, melted
  • 1 c. nuts (optional)
  • 1 c. chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together dry ingredients. In a mixer, blend together wet ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture. Mix until well blended. Add nuts or chocolate chips if you like. Pour batter into 2 greased loaf pans. (I made 6 mini’s in the above picture) Fill about halfway. Bake at 350 for about an hour. (I baked the mini’s for 40 minutes)
