My love for pumpkin is one that has definitely matured over the last couple of years.  I was never a big fan up until I met my boyfriend who is a borderline pumpkin fanatic.  Upon a recent trip to visit his parents, his mom made a cornucopia of baked goods to keep our mouths full and our tummies happy.  One of the things she made was this bread.  I ate probably two entire loaves to myself. 

I got the recipe from her, and she got the recipe from www.thefreshloaf.com, and now you are getting it from me and Instructables!  You are welcome!

Enjoy this over a cup of coffee with a pat of irish salted butter on top.  It doesn't get better than that on a Sunday morning!

Step 1: Ingredients

Yield: Makes ~ 12 muffins, 3 small loaves, or 2 large one
  • 16-ounce can pumpkin (2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3-4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
  • loaf pans (use what you got, i just grabbed some aluminum ones from the store, which actually are really great to reuse since the bread just slides right out!!)
<p>Oh myyy It looks AWESOME</p>
This looks awesome! I'm so excited to make it. I don't usually put nuts in the breads I make but I love pecans so this is an exception ;)
love me some Pumpkin bread!
