This recipe was inspired by a family recipe and my favorite orange cookies. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Flavor is best if baked the day before serving.

  • Combine flour, white sugar, orange zest, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and ginger in a bowl.

  • Beat eggs in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add pumpkin, oil, milk, and 1/4 cup orange juice; beat on medium speed until combined. Add the flour mixture in 2 batches, blending well after each addition. Pour batter into the prepared pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Turn loaves onto a rack to finish cooling, about 20 minutes more.

  • Mix confectioners' sugar, lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons orange juice until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle over the bread. Top with freshly grated cinnamon.

Overall this is very good with a nice balance of orange and pumpkin flavors however it does need some tweaking to be 5 star. 3 cups of sugar was far too sweet for this family next time will start with 2 cups and work up. Will also sub at least some applesauce for all the oil. I found that this needed two 9 x 5 loaf pans or 3 standard loaf pans (cleaning spillage out of the oven isn't high on my fun to do list) This is something I will definitely make again. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving! Read More
