Fresh Pumpkin Bread {Quick Bread}


This super easy, one bowl pumpkin quick bread is delicious. Served plain or with a dollop of fresh whipped cream, it is one we all enjoy.

Long Island Cheese Pumpkin


1 cup fresh pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. salt
* 1/4 cup water (I omit this when using fresh baked pumpkin puree, but you would add it if using a can of pumpkin puree you bought in the store).

Preheat oven to 350 F. Whisk together the pumpkin, eggs, oil, brown sugar,vanilla and *water (if using). In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon.

Spray a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with baking spray and pour in batter. Bake 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Let cool 1 hour, then removed from the loaf pan and transfer to a rack to cool completely.

Slice, serve and enjoy.
