Is there anything better than the smell of pumpkin bread in the Fall? I absolutely love to make this quick and easy bread. It’s perfect for breakfast, dessert and everything in between. The best part is the gorgeous loaf pan (sources linked below) Here’s our family favorite recipe.
This recipe has been one I’ve used over and over and our family just loves it. Not only is it delicious, but it’s super easy. It makes a great breakfast sweet bread, delish for dessert and makes a beautiful gift as well. I made mine in a beautiful loaf pan which makes it even more “extra”. I’ll link the pan options at the end. I also have a printable version with ingredients below.
First, gather all your ingredients. That always helps me to line everything up and make sure I have everything I need ready to go. Preheat the oven to 325 and spray the loaf pan with baking spray. This gorgeous pan makes the loaf look amazing. I’ve linked a few options at the end of the post.
In a saucepan melt the butter and swirl it until it’s slightly brown and has a nutty aroma. Then remove from heat and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, combine the sugars (white and brown) and the brown butter.
Add the eggs and pumpkin and beat 3 minutes.
Gradually add the dry. mixture to wet mixture until combined. Then, pour batter into loaf pan and bake 60 minutes until a knife inserted comes out clean.
Remove loaf from oven and cool a few minutes. After it’s slightly cooled, level your knife with the loaf pan and slice off the portion that raised up while baking. This will help your loaf to sit flush and not wobble. You can save the scraps for taste testing and snacking 🙂
This would make a beautiful hostess gift (loaf and the pan) Next, be prepared to wow your guests with this beauty.
