Pumpkin Spice Loaf

13 Oct

Fall (and especially Thanksgiving) is the perfect time to cook with pumpkin. Everywhere you go, there’s pumpkin-flavoured something available. I found this fabulous recipe through Hillary, who regularly posts amazing looking (and sounding) recipes. This is very easy to make, and is a HUGE crowd-pleaser.

Pumpkin Spice Loaf

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease 9×5 loaf pan.

In large bowl, whisk together sugars, eggs, oil, water, pumpkin and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.

In medium bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients.

Stir dry ingredients into pumpkin mixture.

Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake for 55-65 minutes, until top is lightly golden and toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

I doubled the recipe so that we could have two loaves, and they turned out perfectly! I made them yesterday afternoon, and we’ve already gobbled down one of the loaves. We’re having our big family Thanksgiving meal this evening, and I’m sure the last loaf will be consumed as part of our dessert.
