Not Dad’s Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread

Total Time: 1 hour

Makes 1 loaf.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cup fresh pumpkin puree
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
Some people add chopped nuts. I don’t.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease a loaf pan with soft or melted butter. Dust with sugar.

In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, spices, baking soda and baking powder, set aside.

Stir together sugar and oil until well blended. Add pumpkin puree and eggs. Mix until smooth. Add flour mixture and mix well, removing clumps, until smooth.

Pour batter into greased pan, and bake 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

This recipe calls for fresh pumpkin puree, which has considerably more water in it than the stuff you find in a can. For a recipe with canned pumpkin, please see Dad’s pumpkin bread (it makes two loaves!).
