Pumpkin Bread

This is a go-to recipe during the fall, when I will generally have the ingredients stocked in the pantry at all times. It’s great as a dessert (particularly if you throw in some chocolate chips right before baking) or as a sweet treat with coffee in the morning.  – Meghan

Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 15oz can of pumpkin
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cloves
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat sugar and vegetable oil in a large mixing bowl, then mix in the eggs and pumpkin.
  3. Stir half the flour into the wet ingredients until combined, add the spices, baking powder, baking soda and salt and stir to combine, then stir in the remaining flour until combined.
  4. Divide the batter between 2 floured loaf pans and bake for about an hour, until a toothpick or knife inserted into the loaves comes out clean. Once the loaves have cooled, you should be able to take them out of the pans, which makes them easier to cut and serve.
