I feel like, up to this point, with the exception of my quick night away, I've tried my best to not go too pumpkin crazy, but as it is officially Fall, I intend to fully indulge in all things pumpkin.
As promised, here is the recipe for this delicious Pumpkin Loaf I enjoyed this morning. It's dense, but super moist, and it doesn't have a strong spice flavour (even though I doubled the spices in the original recipe).
The recipe was found on Pinterest and adapted from the original recipe found here. I halved the recipe successfully, and immediately regretted that decision.
makes one 9" x 5" loaf
Preheat oven to 350' and grease pan. Set aside.
In large bowl, mix:
1 cup pure pumpkin
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
In small bowl, mix:
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. pumpkin spice
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Add dry ingredients to wet, and mix to combine. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 55 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
I've been looking through all my cookbooks, page marking the Fall recipes I'm looking forward to trying.
Fittingly, we spent our first day of Fall at the Fall Fair, completeing a scavenger hunt. The pumpkin loaf made a tasty snack!
