Today I’m sharing with you my favorite recipe for Pumpkin Bread, it’s one of those perfect Fall foods. You may of seen my post the other day on Instagram about my Fall morning essentials, one them was this bread. I love this with a cup of tea and some fruit in the mornings. I also throw in a couple hard boiled eggs for some added protein. This bread is definitely the main event and the longer it sits on the counter after baking the better it gets. All the spices continue to blend together and I swear I love it more on Day 4 than Day 1. As tempting as it is I don’t cut into it until the next day, if you can so the same I highly recommend it, your patience will be rewarded.
I first found the recipe of King Arthur Flour’s website and tweaked a few things like reducing the sugar and adding cinnamon, I really couldn’t believe the original recipe didn’t include cinnamon to me thats the perfect Fall spice.
This has got to be one of the best pumpkin breads I’ve ever had! I hope you will give it a try!
adapted from King Arthur Flour
1 cup canola oil
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 cups (or one 15-ounce can) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
2/3 cup water
3 1/3 cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease two 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ loaf pans ; two 9″ x 5″ loaf pans or one bundt pan.
In a large bowl, beat together the oil, sugar, eggs, pumpkin, vanilla and water.
Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg, stirring to combine.
Pour the batter into the prepared pans.
Bake the bread for 60 to 80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. ( I start with 60mins and then check on it, last time I made it, it was done in an hour)
Let cool on a wire rack. After it’s cooled it’s best to let it sit overnight before eating.
