This weekend I decided to welcome in the fall season with some good ol’ pumpkin bread. I didn’t have a recipe so I resorted to google. I typed in the search bar “pumpkin bread” and chose the first one. Crazy right? Not really, because it had 5 stars and enough reviews to allow me to willingly try it! Thank you anonymous from allrecipes.com, I will be sure to give thanks to you this Thanksgiving!
Because snapshotting is so awesome the recipe is as follows:
So, what stood out most to me about this recipe was that the sugar was combined with the liquid ingredients and the flour and spices were combined in a separate bowl! I think this made a difference because it most pumpkin bread recipes all dry ingredients are combined and the pumpkin purée is left in its own solitary bowl…lonely.
Liquid ingredients, pumpkin purée and sugar:
After mixing each bowl well enough, I then divided the batter into 3 loaf pans. It was the perfect amount of batter! I placed them on a cookie sheet so they would cool evenly and popped them in the oven for about 60 minutes even though it called for 50 minutes. It all depends how your oven works.
The end result:
The bread came out smelling like pure pumpkin on a thanksgiving night! I was pleasantly surprised how moist the bread was. It cooked evenly from the inside and out. Something unique about this recipe was the fact that no baking powder was used yet the bread still arose to a supreme height!
This bread wasn’t too sweet and I could distinguish the nutmeg, cinnamon, and crushed cloves which is sometimes overruled by the amount of sugar used! My tip for you is to slice up your 3 day old bread, spread some butter on it, and put it in the microwave for 15 seconds and BAM! You’ll thank me later 🙂
