Spiced Pumpkin Bread

Rated as 4.62 out of 5 Stars

"A pumpkin loaf spiced with cinnamon, ground cloves, and nutmeg. I came up with this recipe after many failed attempts at pumpkin loaf. I adapted a favorite banana loaf recipe and this was the result. Yum! This recipe yields 3 loaves. Stock your freezer!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix white sugar, brown sugar, and melted butter together in a large bowl. Stir in eggs and vanilla extract; mix in pumpkin until thoroughly combined.

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you desire, you can combine 1 tablespoon white sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon to sprinkle on top of the loaves before baking.

The only issue I had with this recipe is how it fit into three loaf pans. I prepared three pans but when I dumped the batter I realized I barely had enough for two. So I baked it in two 9x5 me...

Made for my wife (she loves pumpkin bread) and she won't let me make a different recipe.
