It's definitely fall here! I'm loving every single aspect of it too!
I promised a blog post with the recipe for my pumpkin spice bread a week ago... but due to unruly dogs, that didn't happen. So, we did a Take 2 and this week worked out great.
1 15oz can of pure pumpkin
3 cups of sugar
1 cup of water
1 cup of vegetable oil
3 1/3 cups of all purpose flour
2 tsp's of baking soda
2 tsp's of cinnamon
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of nutmeg
3/4 tsp of ground cloves
Preheat oven to 350
Grease AND flour 2 loaf pans
Combine pumpkin, sugar, water oil and eggs and mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and beat until smooth.
Divide batter between both loaf pans.
Bake for 60-70 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from pans.
Pumpkin pie spice could easily be substituted for the cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Add little or more spice depending on your preference.
Top with cream cheese or a pumpkin spice flavored cream cheese!
Tomorrow.... my sweet friend shared a recipe with me for Pumpkin Spice Lattes! They are to die for and won't break the pocket book like Starbucks will!
