Step 2: Whisk the Dry Ingredients
First let's preheat the oven to 325 F (162 C). Then let's add our salt, ground cloves, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, baking soda, and baking powder, to our flour and whisk them all together really well. Or you can sift them all together if you like.
Step 3: Cream Butter and Sugar
Next in a large bowl, let's cream our sugar with our butter, using a hand mixer or stand mixer. Make sure your butter is softened.
Step 4: Eggs and Pumpkin
Now let's add in our eggs one at a time, mixing in between and scraping the sides of the bowl with a spatula when needed. Mix until they are just combined, we don't want to over mix. Now add in your pure pumpkin, and again mix until just combined, scraping the sides as needed.
Step 5: Flour Time
Next we will add in our flour half of it at a time. Mix the first half of the flour, scrape the sides of the bowl, mix in the last half of the flour, and scrape the sides of the bowl, then one final mix. At this stage use the low setting on your mixer.
Step 6: Fill, Bake, and Cool
Now we fill up our 8x4 inch bread pans, which we have greased with shortening or butter and dusted with flour. Try and put equal amounts of batter in each pan. Then bake for 65 to 75 minutes until when you poke it with a toothpick or bamboo skewer, it comes out clean. Next let the bread cool for 10 minutes while still in the pan.
Step 7: Transfer and Cool, Cut and Serve
Now transfer the bread to wired racks and let them cool completely. Next cut into that bread and serve it! I like it with some butter on top, but it is super yummy plain. Enjoy! :) Try not to eat the whole loaf in one sitting. haha.
