Seasonally appropriate recipe

October 23rd, 2007

I love this bread (actually closer to a cake consistency but bread doesn’t sound as sinful).  A co-worker brought this to a holiday party at work many years ago and I wanted to eat the whole loaf.  I got the recipe and then lost it a few years ago.  I’ve searched for something similar and couldn’t find anything.  I am not a baker but I had to recreate this bread.  I played around with the ingredients and think I am just about back to the original (Tonya – do you have a copy from KD?).

Pumpkin Bread

1 box pound cake mix 16 oz

1/2 C water

3 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice

1 C solid packed pumpkin (about 2/3 of the small can)

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Beat on low for 1 min.  Pour into greased and floured loaf pan.  Bake 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes.

I like to dust it with powdered sugar when I serve it.  I could seriously eat the whole loaf in a day.



Happy fall!  It actually feels like fall here this week.  It is raining and cold.  The weather has finally prompted the trees to start changing colors.  I’m not loving the rain (though we needed it) but I am loving the fall temperatures.  I was feeling a bit out of sorts wearing shorts in late October.

    You had me at pound cake! YUMMY!!

    OK, so do you have any secrets to getting the bottom part of the bread to not stick to the pan when you take it out? I saw that yours does what mine does (though my pumpkin bread recipe is not THIS good!).

    My family will love this. I serve pumpkin bread for breakfast often. Think this will still pas?? :>)
