I'll be the first to admit, I LOVE bread. I really do. From a good piece of sourdough with butter to the sweetest of breads, I LOVE it all. Naturally, I had to try my hand at a pumpkin bread. I will be honest, this proved to be a little bit of a challenge. One attempt, it came out like a dense pumpkin pie shoved in a crispy crust... NOT GOOD! Lucas quietly muttered an "interesting" as he tried to finish a bite. In the end though, I ended up with a deliciously moist, pumpkin bread.
Here is What You Need:
1 15 oz can Pumpkin Filling
2 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 teaspoons Cinnamon*
1 large Egg
1/2 cup of Water
9 inch Bread Pan
*For a more spiced recipe, substitute: 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon all spice
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons softened Butter
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Set aside.
Beat egg, sugar and vanilla together. Add pumpkin filling and water and whisk until well combined.
Slowly add flour mixture and stir well.
Cut butter into the brown sugar. It will be lumpy and this is good!
Pour the pumpkin mixture into a well greased 9 inch bread pan. Sprinkle the brown sugar and butter on top.
Set the timer to 1 hour and pop the pan in the oven!
Let me know how yours turned out!
