Make this delicious Pumpkin Bread for your family and have them eating out of your hands this fall.
I seriously can not get enough of pumpkin bread. Truth be told, if I could get away with it, either on the scale or without being found out, I would (and could) eat the entire loaf. That’s how much I love it! So, you can imagine that I don’t make it that often for obvious reasons. Thankfully I have friend who loves to gift pumpkin bread for the holidays though. Her recipe is to-die-for. In fact, she’s such a good friend that she shared her recipe with me! I’ve been meaning to share it here for years and today I finally managed to bake it, photograph it and write it up in a blog post! #boom
*NOTE: If you follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus Program, I calculated each serving to be about 5 points plus! Although I made 2 loafs of bread and 12 muffins, I estimated that this recipe would make 36 muffins. So, one muffin would be about 5 points.
Okay, now that we got that out of the way…………here’s the only pumpkin bread recipe you’ll ever need!
Preheat Oven at 350
3 1/3 cup flour 3 cups sugar
2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp salt
Make a “well” in the mix and add:
-1 1/2 can pumpkin (regular not spiced) this equals about 3 cups
-1 cup oil
-2/3 cup water
-pinch of brown sugar
Mix until smooth, add 1 tsp vanilla and if desired add:
1 cup chopped nuts or 1 cup raisins
Grease pans and flour lightly
Sprinkle brown sugar on top of pumpkin mix before baking. That will give it a slightly crunchy top. Bake in oven for about an hour or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the bread comes out clean.
