Pumpkin Bread


This was so good! I made muffins and bread with this recipe. For the muffins I used 1/4 cup in each muffin lined tin and baked for 20 minutes. The bread takes one hour to bake. I used my fresh pumpkin puree that I made up last Thursday.

Pumpkin Bread

1 1/2 sticks butter
3 tablespoons molasses
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 cups pumpkin puree
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoons ground cloves

Oven temp 350

With an electric mixer, mix all ingredients.

Spoon into prepared 3 buttered - 9 x 5 x3 loaf pans.

Bake on 350 for one hour.

(( As I said above if you make muffins use a 1/4 cup and pour into lined muffin tins and bake for 20 minute on 350.))

This bread freezes very well. So bake in your spare time and freeze them up for drop in company. ~enjoy!

Hi there! Thank you for visiting my site and leaving a sweet comment! I've enjoyed my visit here as well, and wanted to tell you that I love your idea of making things to put your gifts in. My grandma used to make bread sacks out of the prettiest cotton material, then attach cording in the seam to tie it up with. You've just reminded me of that,so I think I will make some of them to wrap my bread in for Christmas. Thank you!
Pumpkin bread is a favorite around here, too. It just makes your whole house smell like Autumn, doesn't it?!
Blessings,

Okay...my next guess is something to do with Elliot and Kelsey. Are you going to spill the beans or am I suppose to call you? Or (and this just isn't a viable option in my humble opinion) do you expect me to wait?? :O) Spill...Jax
