Pumpkin Bread

Helloooo fall! While yes, it technically started at the end of last month, I thought I would wait until we were in full baking season mode around here to share one of my personal favorites with you! 

But, I suppose I should be fully honest with you and say that I have never tasted it myself… I just love making it because the smell makes your home (and nose) quite happy. Plus, I have yet to get a bad review on it. (That counts for something… right?)

**Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of Libby’s Pure pumpkin
    “So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.” 1 Corinthians 15: 58
  • 1/2 cup of sunflower (or vegetable) oil
  • 2/3 cup of water
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups of sugar 
  • 3 1/3 cups of flour
  • 2 tsps of baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsps of salt 
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of ground nutmeg 

**Directions:

  • Mix wet ingredients.
  • Mix dry ingredients.
  • Slowly stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture.
    “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Colossians 3: 14
  • Pour your batter into your bread pan. (If you are adding chocolate chips, now’s the time to do that! I usually fill my own halfway add some chips fill it the rest of the way and then top with some more chips… because chocolate rocks my socks.)
    “And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5: 5
  • Bake at 350° F for 45-55min.
  • If you didn’t not opt for the chocolate chips but still want to add a little pizzazz to your bread try this:

**Glaze

  • 3 tbsps of Powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp of hot water
  • Splash (1 tbsp) of maple syrup
  •  About 3 drops of molasses (If you want a richer flavor.)
    “Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6: 35

I hope that you enjoy making this one as much as I do! Probably one of the best “candles” (this is what Kasey calls food you can’t eat but smells amazing) I know of. There is just something about baking and sharing what you’ve made with loved ones that makes my heart happy. 

Did you bake with a loved one? What fun memories did you make?

Did you like this recipe? 

Did you do anything different? What was it?

What is your favorite fall recipe?

Until next time; I pray your day, every day, is blessed.

    I love the idea of food candles! 🙂 That puts the focus on a part of the food you can enjoy – the smell! ☺
