Pumpkin Spice Bread

It is hard to believe that this is the last week of October and I had yet to make anything pumpkin until now. This pumpkin spice bread is so indicative of the season. It carries such an aroma of Fall and it the perfect snack, dessert or even breakfast. This recipe makes two loaves so could be the perfect gift for a friend or neighbor. If you make this bread this weekend your house will be filled with flavors of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg just in time for Halloween!

You Will Need:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt in a medium bowl and set aside
  • Beat the sugar and oil in a large bowl until blended
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well blended and then beat in the pumpkin
  • Add the flour mixture and stir until just blended
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pans
