After many requests…
We have finally changed the date to 2012 on our printable below!
Are we boring you yet with our pumpkin recipes?
Because I have another one.
Jess waits all year to make her pumpkin chocolate chip cheesecake muffins. Well, I wait all year for this pumpkin bread. It’s the best. I got this recipe from my best friend’s mom years ago. Thanks Jennie! She has such a cool name.
I love this recipe because I have always been able to make four mini loaves and one regular loaf. Honestly, I can’t even tell you how many regular loaves this would make because I have made it this way for so many years.
The mini loaves are great because mysteriously a whole loaf will be devoured in one day at our house. And when the kids have only had one piece at breakfast and the rest is gone before they get home from school I just say to myself, ‘Well, at least it was a MINI loaf.’
As you can see I used my Pampered Chef mini loaf pan and the other for the regular loaf. (Yes, the pan is suppose to look dirty like that. It means it’s seasoned…or that I use it a lot. Either way it’s a good thing. Go ask a PC consultant ;)
Pumpkin Bread Ingredients:
1 large (29 oz.) can of pumpkin puree
4 cups of sugar
1 cup of vegetable oil
5 cups of flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla
How to prepare:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together pumpkin, oil & sugar in a big bowl.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves & nutmeg.
Add dry ingredients to pumpkin and stir together. Add vanilla to all and mix well.
Pour batter into pans and bake at 350 degrees for 45-5o minutes for the mini loaves. I take out the mini loaves (check with a toothpick to make sure they are done) and then keep the larger loaf in for another 10-15 minutes. When toothpick comes out clean it’s done!
Seriously, there is already one ‘mini’ loaf gone. My girls walked in the house from school today and knew right away what the smell was.
The best thing about this bread is that I wrap up the other loaves and put them in freezer bags. When a loaf is gone we grab another one out of the freezer. Clearly they don’t last long in our house, but it’s such a good feeling to know I have four loaves left.
Ok, three and a half.
This also makes the perfect gift for neighbors, housewarming or teachers. I’ve created these printables for you to add that little touch! I love giving them out at Christmas time too. I will try and remember to make a more ‘Christmasy’ printable in December.

This is the scallop punch I use, but you could also just use a circle punch!
Those cute wrapped loaves have been
unwrapped and put in the freezer for my family.
Sorry friends. You will have to wait for the next batch!
