Hello Fall, I have missed you. Thank you for coming back. I see that sweater and scarves weather is now appropriate and the return of my chucks are apparent. Goodbye flip-flops, I will miss you, too. (But you will be back before I know it.) I can’t wait for some good ‘ole roasts, soups of all sorts, baked lasagnas, heck just using my oven to prepare a meal and yes of course everything with pumpkin. Pumpkin bars, pumpkin pie, pumpkin waffles, pumpkin yogurt, pumpkin spice lattes and my favorite pumpkin bread. (I’m a little bit crazy for pumpkin!) I love that pumpkin is back in season, and I can order my pumpkin spice lattes from evil Starbucks. Of course, like the pumpkin nut that I am – I need to pair my pumpkin spice latte with pumpkin bread. It wouldn’t be complete. I do not want to go broke visiting your store for this treat so I needed to figure out how to make you. It’s a moist quick bread made with ripe pumpkin and a blend of fall spices. DELISH. Luckily my coworker got this recipe and shared it to me. She’s quite the devoted Starbucks customer, and I was grateful for her sharing this recipe. Here’s one of my favorite pumpkin spice breads for you pumpkin lovers out there.

Ingredients: 1 ½ cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon baking powder ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon ½ teaspoon ground ginger ¼ teaspoon ground clove ¼ teaspoon ground allspice ½ teaspoon salt 4 eggs 1 cup sugar ¼ cup dark brown sugar ½ teaspoon vanilla ¾ cup canned pumpkin ¾ cup vegetable oil ¼ cup pumpkin seeds, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices, and salt and whisk to combine. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugars, and vanilla on high speed for about 30 seconds. Add dry ingredients and mix. Add pumpkin and oil, mix to combine. Pour batter into a 9×5 greased loaf pan. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until the top of the bread begins to brown. When the bread is cool, slice into approximately 1 inch slices. Enjoy!
Review: Yum and yum. I love how this melts in your mouth because it’s so good. The wonderful aroma of sweet pumpkin bread baking away in your kitchen brings gleeful memories to my pumpkin heart. I brought this in for my co-workers and they were all surprised it was pumpkin bread – the spices make you second guess. Buttery, spicey, and heavenly. ::drool:: Oh, how I love this sweet bread.
