Making Tuesday Tasty-Pumpkin Bread

It's that time of year again! Fall and pumpkins go hand in hand. Good thing I love pumpkin, at
least in dessert form.

Here's a yummy recipe to try out for those Fall days, while they last.

Pumpkin Bread


cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cup vegetable oil

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups shredded fresh pumpkin

1 cup toasted pumpkin seeds


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Sift the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together.

In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla. Combine both mixtures and

fold in the shredded pumpkin and pumpkin seeds. Once the ingredients are all incorporated pour

into a non- stick 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan. If your pan is not non- stick coat it with butter and


Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. At this point a knife inserted into the middle of the loaf should

come out clean. Cool for 15 minutes and turn out onto a cooling rack. Cool completely. For

muffins temperature should also be 325 degrees F., but bake for 30 minutes.
