An easy pumpkin bread recipe to make at home (even during a pandemic)!
1/2cuplight brown sugar
1 3/4cupall-purpose flour
2teaspoonspumpkin pie spice
3/4cupcanned pumpkin puree*
Preheat the oven to 350, and spray a 9x5" bread loaf pan with cooking spray. Ensure a rack is in the center position of the oven.
In a large bowl, whisk together the sugars, flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
Make a hole in the center of the mixture, and add all remaining ingredients: pumpkin, eggs, oil, water and vanilla.
Stir everything together very well, but try not to over-mix.
Scrape the batter into the pan, and place in the oven. Bake for 60 minutes, and then test the center of the bread for wetness with a long toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, the bread is done. If not, add another 5 minutes of baking time and test again. Ensure the bread is fully done before you remove it from the oven or it will sink as it cools!
Notes: *Be sure to buy canned pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. Also, flavorless oil can be: vegetable oil, canola oil, grapeseed oil, or avocado oil. Anything that won't impart flavor to the bread. Recipe Courtesy of www.dessertfortwo.com/
