Pumpkin Bread

this is going to be a quicky…

A while ago I got a pumpkin with my CSA box.  It has now been magically transformed into wonderful pumpkin bread (and six cupcakes).

Preparing the pumkin was a little messier than I would have liked…

But it was worth it!

Pumpkin Bread

3 cups flour

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. nutmeg

1 tsp. ground cloves

1 tbsp. and 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

4 eggs

1 ¼ cups vegetable oil

1  ¼ cups sugar

½ cup brown sugar

2 cups pumpkin puree (canned or otherwise.  Boiled the peeled pumpkin in 2 tsp brown sugar and then blended with a couple of tbsp soy milk)

-Combine dry ingredients and set aside.

-Beat eggs, vegetable oil, sugar and pumpkin puree.  With an electric blender, slowely add dry ingredients to wet until completely mixed.

-Bake in well buttered pan at 350 until a toothpick comes out clean.

Frosting displayed on the cupcake is a mixture of powdered sugar and lemon juice.  The bread is very sweat as is though, so I don’t think frosting is necessary.

    It looks wonderful, very high and round. My friend made me acorn squash soup today from baked, then pureed, squash. I’m getting in the autumn mode, so bread might be next. I have to take something to an all-day chorus rehearsal Saturday.
