Divinely Moist and Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 60-70 min.
*YIELDS 1 9X5 loaf*


1 cup pumpkin puree [I add a heaping TBSP or 2 more, just because]
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter [or I like to use coconut oil]
1 cup white or brown sugar--*or*—1/2 cup each 
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves-- *or*-- allspice
2 tsp vanilla extract

**optional ** I like to do a thin layer of chopped pecans [about 1/3 cup] and brown sugar [1 or 2 TB] along the bottom of the pan under the batter*

1. Preheat oven to 335 degrees F. Grease and flour 9x5 pan.
2. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, Vanilla, and sugar until well blended. Then add: flour, baking powder and soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Stir until well blended [no flour visible]. Pour into the prepared pan.
3. Bake for 60-65 minutes in the preheated oven. ****40 minutes into cook time -- lay a piece of Aluminum foil [large enough to cover] over top. *Don't fold it down, just lay it on top.* This keeps the top from over-browning.

Done when toothpick or knife inserted into center comes out clean.

    Hi Anne.
    The Huntington Tierneys thought this pumpkin bread was divine! Super moist. Kids loved it with cream cheese. Great blog Anne. Looking forward to trying many of your recipes.

  2. Hello, Hello! Huntington Tierneys!!! Very glad the bread turned out well and you like the blog! So great to finally meet you [well, sort of meet you-ish anyway] Laura!!

  3. I am wanting to make this. But afraid it will not be done in the middle.
    I live your blog/site

  4. The 335 cook temp for 1 hour comes out done in the middle for me every time since I lowered it from 350. At least 7 times in a row now. Lay the sheet of foil over the top at 30 minutes into cook time to prevent the top from getting over done.
    So glad you like my blog!
