pumpkin bread recipe for fresser

  • w

this is an adapted family recipe.. probably once from a cookbook, but I couldn't say which one.

combine dry ingredients:
1.5 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg

6 tbsp room temp butter
add 1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown
then two eggs
then 1 cup pumkin puree

add dry while alternating w/ the following:

1/3 cu milk mixed with 1/2 tsp vanilla

I mix the whole thing with a hand mixer until its time to add the nuts. when incorporated fold in 1/2 cup nuts or similar. I prefer pecans or walnuts.

bake in greased pan for about an hour at 350

it is pretty moist, but does dry out after a few days. best to eat when fresh.. with a little butter. mmmm..

  1. Thank you!!! This looks terrific. And not so bad in the fat content dept either. I can't wait to try it. We get yet another pumpkin from farm share today... will have to put it to good use.

      any fat is by far negated by the healthful properties of pumpkin. didn't you know that? ;)


      1. re: withalonge it's much like chocolate in that regard? Nice!

        1. re: fresser

          of course! good for the heart.

    2. This sounds like a very solid recipe and along the lines of what I'm looking for. I like the fact that it has a little milk and some brown sugar in it. I was actually expecting your recipe to not have ginger or nuts as you indicated before, but am pleased to find out that it does! Thanks for posting it.

        well, wasn't sure that was enough ginger for you... but then again me likes my pumpkin pie & bread on the spicier side.

        what I like about this particular recipe is how easy it comes together. I don't have a light hand with baking. I think I over-stir or add too much flour too often. anyway... any bread that comes out well most of the time is good with me.

      2. Sorry to post it here.
        Here is the recipe I promised you. I posted it early Saturday--not sure if you saw it.

          thanks! i did see it. with the eggs I imagine it cooks up quite fluffy. I think I might experiment this thanksgivign and combine the two recipes as I really like the flavor the bourbon and orange add.

          :) I'll let you know how it comes out.
