Pumpkin Bread

I am so excited to share with y'all today's post! During the fall, I love love love everything pumpkin! One of my favorite recipes is pumpkin bread. I literally eat a slice every single day for breakfast during fall, it's that good!

My mom has been making this recipe since I was little and it's amazing! It's actually from Cooking Light so it's a little less guilty than indulging in pumpkin bread from a bakery! My mom actually says that it tastes exactly like her grandmother's, just at a fraction of the calories!




Ingredients:
Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice, Sugar, Eggs, Vegetable Oil, Buttermilk, Water, Pumpkin


Tip: If you don't have buttermilk on hand, make some yourself! For half a cup, mix half a cup of milk with half a tablespoon of lemon juice.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice together in a bowl until well-combined



 3. Mix sugar, eggs, oil, and buttermilk in using an electric mixer



4. Add in water and pumpkin and mix until well-combined


5. Spray two 9 by 5 inch loaf pans


6. Pour the mixture into the loaf pans



 7. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a knife inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean (please excuse my reflection in the oven)


8. Cool 10 minutes in pans on a wire rack

9. Remove from pans after 10 minutes and cool completely on a wire rack



Ingredients
- 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions
