Tasty Tuesday: Pumpkin Spice Bread

One of my favorite things about fall is the flavors!  Pumpkin, in particular...simply deeeelish.

I made this Pumpkin Spice Bread over the weekend and brought a loaf to some friends we visited in Greensboro who were kind enough to have us over to watch football before going to a wedding Saturday night.  The other loaf I kept, and let me tell you, it is some kind of good.

Pumpkin Spice Bread

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree (make sure you don't accidentally pick up canned pumpkin pie mix!)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (sweetened)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour three 7x3 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, applesauce, water and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Pour into the prepared pans.
  3. Bake for about an hour. Loaves are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Makes (2) 8x4" or (3) 7x3" loafs - or you can make muffins instead!

I'm linking up again today to Neely and Amber's Fabulous Fall Challenge.  Their Fall Recipes topic for today fits perfectly with my Tasty Tuesday theme!
