A few weeks ago my friend Jess took me out to dinner for my birthday. It was the same day as a root canal, so I opted for Kneaders so that I could have some soup and still be able to enjoy my dinner without much chewing! One of my favorite parts of going to Kneaders is that they have their bread samples sitting at the register, and I may have had my fair share of their pumpkin bread samples that night. I have that to thank for my current obsession that is starting to cost me an arm and an leg!
I’ve been obsessed with this bread, and been buying a loaf every time I drive by the restaurant. But unfortunately the bread is not the cheapest. So I decided that I needed to start making it at home. UM- HELLO, it’s amazing and super easy. Plus, it makes 3 full size loaves.
AMAZING Pumpkin Bread recipe
3 1/3 cups flour
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tbsp cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 2/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup butter
30 oz can of pumpkin
2/3 cups water
Preheat oven to 325°
In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients; flour, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Sift together than set aside.
Whip together the softened butter and sugar until well combined. Add the eggs one at a time and then the pumpkin. Once mixed together, add the dry ingredients slowly alternating with the water.
Place mixture into 3 large (or 6 small) cake pans that have been greased or lined. Bake at 325° for an hour (about 10 minutes less for the small loaves)
Let cool on a baking rack then store in an air tight bag, or freeze in freezer paper and then an air tight bag.
