Today, I don’t have any great decorating tips or projects I’ve been working on, mostly because I think my house is still recovering from our crazy weekend. So instead today I have a wonderful new recipe I tried. I am still trying to get in the mode of FALL, since decorating and baking seem to be the only way here in Phoenix to make it feel more that way. I, in my current state of pregnancy, have been craving PUMPKIN! I love pumpkin anyway, but with it being fall it only seems appropriate!
Here it is . . . wonderful Pumpkin Pie Bread!
And I can’t take any credit for this recipe it came straight from Pinterest. Does Pinterest make anyone else want to cook and bake way more often? It does for me, I see all these wonderful foods and have to try them, but then again, I am pregnant so maybe that’s why, and I just LOVE food!
What you need:
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups white sugar (told you it had some calories!)
1 cup vegetable oil
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1/2 cup water
What you do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and grease two 9×5 inch loaf pans.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat together sugar, oil, eggs, and pumpkin. Stir in flour mixture alternately with water.
Divide batter evenly between the pans and bake for 60 to 70 minutes (or until it passes the toothpick test). I actually used one loaf pan and one pan of muffins. Muffins are much easier for the kiddos.
I also added a mixture of cinnamon sugar and sprinkled it on the top for the added sweetness, because yes I have a major sweet tooth!
The kiddos were quite excited for the muffins to be ready!
And they loved them.
So if you are looking for a little touch of fall in your day, try out this bread!! It’s quite yummy!
