Pumpkin Spice Bread

Standard

Last Friday my husband’s work had a Thanksgiving potluck. This had me scrambling to come up with something to make on Thursday which would be suitable for a Thanksgiving-based meal, easy to make, able to withstand his bus commute, and delicious – because I do have quite a reputation to uphold with his coworkers.

This bread fits every criterion.  Delicious, easy, Thanksgiving-y, and extremely portable if you are looking for something to bring to your Thanksgiving feast.

Pumpkin Spice Bread

From Pepper Ever After

 

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 cup pumpkin puree

3 tbsp molasses

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ginger

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup buttermilk

 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cream the butter and sugars together.

Add in the eggs, mixing well, then the molasses and pumpkin.

In a separate bowl mix together the flour, spices, baking powder, and baking soda.

Add 1/2 the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and stir.

Then add in the buttermilk and mix well.

Finally add in the rest of the dry ingredients.

Pour the batter into a well-greased loaf pan and bake for an hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let the bread cool before serving as part of a great Thanksgiving spread.
