How to Make Mom's Moist and Amazing Pumpkin Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1CREAM TOGETHER the first 4 ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
  • 2SIFT TOGETHER the next 7 ingredients in a separate, large bowl.
  • 3Add the creamed mixture to the flour mix and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, then STIR in the chopped nuts and dates.
  • 4Pour batter into 2 greased 8x4x3 (or larger) loaf pans. Bake in preheated oven at 350 for approximately 1 hour. It may take a few minutes longer depending on your oven and the size loaf pans you use, so use a cake tester or toothpick inserted in center to test for doneness. When it comes clean, it's done!

IMPORTANT: Wrap each loaf in foil while still a little warm and then wrap again in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator or freezer until ready to serve. This step guarantees a beautiful and moist pumpkin bread!
