It is #PUMPKINWEEK, and everyday this week I will have a different, yummy recipe featuring pumpkin! I am starting off with a recipe for homemade Pumpkin Bread! I look forward to baking this bread every fall, and giving some away to friends. I wish I could send everyone a loaf of this pumpkin bread, but because I can't, I am sharing it with you today. This recipe has been in my family for a good many years, and I must say, I never get tired of it. I hope you like it!
Homemade Pumpkin Bread
(printable recipe at end of post)
3 1/2 cups Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
Pinch of Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1 cup Corn Syrup
2/3 cup Water
2 cups Pumpkin
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and brown sugar in a bowl. Make a hole in the center. Add the corn syrup, eggs, water and pumpkin to the bowl. Mix together.
Pour into loaf pan of your choice, about 1/2 way up the pan. If using a metal loaf pan, you will need to lightly grease the pan. It is not necessary with most disposable pans.I like these disposable ones when I am giving the bread to friends. I like that they don't have to worry about returning the pan to me. Place in oven. Cook for 30-40 minutes or more, depending on the size of your pan.
Once baked, remove from oven and cool completely. Enjoy as is, or spread a slice with whipped cream cheese.
Decorate, give to a friend and enjoy one yourself.
Thank you for joining me on the first day of #PumpkinWeek! Stop by tomorrow for a sweet recipe of Pumpkin Doughnut Holes!
