Pumpkin Delight Bread is a perfect fall-time treat!
It’s that time of year when I love to make all things pumpkin, I have several favorites, and here are two others that always get made this time of year in my cottage kitchen; Pumpkin Honey Cream Pie, and Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins.
I always go crazy with pumpkins during the fall, but I love baking with pumpkins all year because it’s an economical vegetable to grow in the garden and so easy to freeze and can for the long cold months ahead. So by all means use your own pumpkin purée in this recipe as well 🙂
Pumpkin Delight Bread
- 3 -1/2 cups pumpkin purée
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup olive oil or butter
- 4 1/2 cups unbleached flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cloves
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Nutmeg
- 4 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup Chocolate Chips
- 1 cup Pecans or Walnuts
Mix together pumpkin purée , sugar , and oil or butter, in a large bowl.
Add in the flour, spices, and baking soda and stir until combined.
Pour into three medium-sized bread pans or two large bread pans and bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
I always add toasted nuts and chocolate chips to the top, and slightly pat down before baking.
Simple Baked Goods
My Great Granny always made simple food, and living through the depression she really knew how to use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.
So I keep up the tradition of making simple recipes handed down throughout the generations of women in my family. And there is something so unique and cozy, makes me feel so good to keep these little traditions and recipes alive.
