Pumpkin Bread That Will Melt In Your Mouth!
I was craving something sweet, and wanted to put something different in my hubby's lunch, after searching the cupboard I came across a can of pumpkin puree and my gears started turning! This bread is so moist and yummy and sweet, not overly sweet, but just the right amount. I hope you make this soon and enjoy it as much as I did!
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups sugar
3/4 cups unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 15 oz can pumpkin
1. Preheat your oven to 350º F, grease two loaf pans and set aside.
2. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and spices in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.
3. In a large bowl cream your butter and sugar with an electric mixer until blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until very light and fluffy. Beat in pumpkin till combined.
4. On low beat in flour mixture, pour batter into pans and bake 65-75 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, remove from pans and cool on a wire wrack completely. Serve and let it melt in your mouth...
