So moist and tender with fantastic flavor. This recipe makes one bread or three mini loaves. I made three small individuals to wrap and give as gifts.

I just love the taste of this bread...top with sugar and nuts as I did...or use your favorite glaze. Or nothing at all...

Enjoy!

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

1 Hr

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1 2/3 c
all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 Tbsp
plus 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp
nutmeg, freshly grated
1/4 tsp
ground cloves
1 c
plus 2 tablespoons - solid packed pumpkin
1 c
vegetable oil & yes, its 1 cup..lol
1 1/3 c
sugar
3/4 tsp
salt
3 large
eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 325 degree F.

Grease the bottom and sides of a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
2
You can use a mixer for this recipe, but I mix it by hand. That helps not to over mix.
Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves into a mixing bowl.
3
In a large mixing bowl, beat the pumpkin, oil, sugar, and salt together until well blended.
4
Beat the eggs in one at a time, making sure each egg is completely incorporated before adding the next one. Scrape the sides of the bowl as necessary.
5
Add the flour and mix until just combined. You don’t want to over beat the batter as it will result in a tougher crumb. Then beat for 5 to 10 seconds until smooth.
6
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and tap the pan on the counter to help flatten the batter out.
7
I sprinkled with sugar/cinnamon and pecans.

If using sugar and nut topping : I used about 3 tablespoons of sugar..1/4 tsp cinnamon - 1/2 cup pecans, chopped.
8
Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.

Remove from oven to cooling rack. Let set for 20 minutes.
9
Flip bread out onto cooking rack, turn the cake back right side up and cool completely.


Enjoy!
