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?)
- 2 cups of Libby’s Pure pumpkin
- 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
- Mix wet ingredients.
- Mix dry ingredients.
- Slowly stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture.
- 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.)
- 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:
- 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.)
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.
