Pumpkin Bread

I am a sucker for pumpkin spice (yep, I am one of those ladies who love pumpkin spice lattes and anything pumpkin flavored) so after seeing many posts and reviews about the pumpkin bread from Smitten Kitchen, I decided to make some of my own — and it did NOT disappoint. So delicious and yummy, and so easy to make. I will definitely make this throughout the fall and winter seasons and highly recommend that you all do the same, as well!





* 1 15-ounce can (1 3/4 cups) pumpkin puree

* 1/2 cupĀ  neutral cooking oil or melted butter

* 3 large eggs

* 1 2/3 cups granulated sugar

* 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

* 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

* 3/4 teaspoon fine sea or table salt

* 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

* Heaped 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

* Heaped 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

* 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour



* 1 tablespoon sugar

* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

so good, so good.


* Then, add baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves over batter and whisk until well-combined.


Flour added, thicker but still smooth.


* Add flour and stir with a spoon, just until mixed. Scrape into prepared pan and smooth the top.


Spoon in to the loaf pan.


* In a small dish, or empty measuring cup, stir sugar and cinnamon together. Sprinkle over top of batter.


yes, extra sugar, but extra good!


* Bake bread for 65 minutes until a tester poked into all parts of cake.

* Then, devour!


LOOK HOW DELICIOUS IT IS!?!?!?!?!? Looks like a mesa formation in Arizona.


So good, especially with more butter and jam. Happy pumpkin spice season!
