I saw this recipe (and about 100 other versions of it) on-line, when I was looking for another one to use pumpkin in. I did a combination of a couple 5 star recipes and tried this. Perfect and easy the first time out. I've also included a short recipe for "Pumpkin Pie Spice" along with it. Enjoy! Make sure to preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

How to Make Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare 2 loaf pans by lightly coating with an oil spray, such as Pam. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients EXCEPT the flour, until smooth. Gradually add in the flour until well blended and pour into the prepared pans. Tap them lightly on the counter to remove any bubbles and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 60 minutes, turn off the oven and leave them in (without peaking) for another 10 minutes.
  3. Cool completely on racks, remove from pans, and store in gallon sized zip bags.
