A Little Treat

I know that this is something you usually have for the holidays, and yesterday I said that I’m working on eating better, but this recipe is too good to not share! Ever year around November/December Jesse bakes a little slice of heaven, also known as pumpkin bread! But a better name would probably be pumpkin cake, since the recipe calls for 3 cups of sugar! pumpkin bread recipeIngredients:

  • 1 (15 oz.) can of pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. ground gingerpumpkin bread recipe3Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 C). In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin, eggs, oil, water and sugar until it’s all blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until blended. Then bake for about 50 minutes, use the toothpick trick to tell you when it’s done.  Let it rest for about 30 minutes, then slice it up and enjoy! This stuff usually only lasts about 2 days in our house, it’s sooooo good. pumpkin bread recipe2What’s your favorite form of cake/bread? Or a holiday treat you always bake?

  1. That looks delicious! I love pumpkin bread. I always love making cranberry bread. And my mom makes the most amazing apple cake with brown sugar frosting. Amazing.
    Your pumpkin bread pictures are gorgeous!

  2. I LOVE the new look and this recipe has totally made me hungry!!! And I’m just trying to get caught up on blog posts in the midst of my move and want to say CONGRATS on the Remodelaholic guest post and I love the idea of a year of challenge. Such a motivating idea I think!!

  3. Mmmmmm this looks amazing! My family has a pumpkin bread recipe that we make every year around the holidays to give out to neighbors, teachers, etc. (and of course I eat way more than my fair share!). We even still have a loaf in the freezer to enjoy in the post-holiday season! :)
