Pumpkin Bread!

Happy Halloween and in the spirit of the holiday, instead of tricks, I made treats! 15 loaves to be exact! 12 for BaBa to bless her friends, 1 for a dear friend who just lost her loving and loyal companion after 60+ years and two for me to take to work. I'm still new there, so I have to show them what I'm made of! ;)

Pumpkin Bread

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. all spice
1 29 oz can on pumpkin

Cream butter and sugars together in a mixer. When mixed well, add eggs. Mix on med-high speed until thoroughly combined. Add spices, baking soda and baking powder and mix well. Add flour one cup at a time until mixed well. Add pumpkin and mix until combined.

Liberally grease, I used Baker's Friend (greatest stuff on the planet!!!) 2 or 3 loaf pans. I used 3, 2 regular sized and one smaller, but I didn't fill them up all the way. Bake on 350 for 45 minutes and then test with a toothpick for doneness. When the toothpick comes out clean take them out of the oven and let them cool on a wire rack. You can serve it warm with butter, cream cheese icing, or try a nut topping before you bake it!


  1. This bread is soooo delicious! Such a wonderful blend of Fall! Not over-whelming with the "spices" either! LOVE IT!

  2. There you are and I was right! When you disappeared from blogging I figured you must have a new job. WooHoo! I want make this bread. Love, hugs and prayers for you. You are awesome.

  3. Aww thank you!! I'm trying to get back in the swing of things! :)

  4. Made the bread. Two of four loaves are already demolished (I did three small and one large). I am very picky about my pumpkin bread, and I gotta tell you, THIS ONE ROCKS MY WORLD! Love, love, love it!

  5. I don't think this is on my "diet" but everyone needs a little treat now and then, right? =) Looks delish. I'm going to try it out soon!
