Pumpkin Bread

 Please join me  for my favorite pumpkin bread and a cup of tea, won't you?  I have some whipped cream cheese that we can smear onto our slices.


 Isn't this pumpkin teapot the cutest?  I don't buy any decorations any more.  I just bring out the old friends!


This Calico teacup from Crownford China, Staffordshire, England is one that I like to use in the Fall.

This week, after school, Cissy made these cute pumpkin head guys that I saw on my bloggy buddy Lynn's recent post at Happier Than A Pig In Mud, found  here.

Lynn always shares fun ideas and great recipes.

Yield: 2- 9x5" loaf pans, or 3-7x3" loaf pans 

Pumpkin Bread

I've been making this bread recipe for over 40 years, from when I lived in Ohio. I've never found another one that I like better. I hope you try it, as it's the perfect Fall treat,  and makes for nice gifts. I sometimes make mini loaf pans for gifting.  They freeze well, too.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 can pumpkin puree (2 cups)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, optional

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices together in a large bowl. I often just use a whisk to do this.
  2. Beat the eggs slightly, then add the pumpkin, water, sugar, oil, and nuts (if using), and mix together.
  3. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix.
  4. Pour into greased loaf pans.
  5. Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. If making mini loaves, check after 30 minutes or so.

  2. I think that your adorable pumpkin teapot is the long-lost cousin of my pumpkin teapot that I shared today. It never occurred to me to try pumpkin bread with cream cheese. What a yummy idea!

  3. Pumpkin bread sounds wonderful Kitty! I haven't made a bread in ages as I have just recently started to bake again. I'm finding it very difficult with my hand however. I adore Calico and your teacup is simply perfect for Autumn! Your pumpkin teapot is adorable. I never see one around here and I'm sure if I did I would pick it up because I do have a 'thing' for pumpkins. Have a beautiful day, sweet friend, and thank you for the tea and bread.

    Hugs,
    Sandi

  12. I’m with you...I don’t give into buying new stuff much anymore unless I think it just HAS to come home with me. I like thinking of new ways to use my “old” pieces. It’s nice to get reacquainted with pieces I haven’t used in forever! Sadly, there are pieces I’ve had for months or years that have NEVER been used. Pumpkin bread sounds good. It’s supposed to only get up to about 45 here tomorrow. Perfect weather for it!

  13. I quite buying new seasonal stuff, too, and concentrate on using what I have...even with that I have given a ton of it away now..and I still have a lot left.

    The pumpkin bread sounds good and those little pumpkin head people are almost as cute as their 'maker'. xo Diana

  14. Oh, my, I just LOVE anything pumpkin! This bread sounds amazing. I am thinking I might try it and use honey as the sweetener...I am steering clear of refined white sugar...not sure how using honey will alter it, but it sounds like it is worth a try! I am also delving into the Trim Healthy Mama book and trying to learn how to modify recipes like this one to fit their plan. So much to learn! Thank you for another wonderful post, sweet friend. Praying for you. :)

  16. I would love to look in all you cupboards, Kitty, to see what beautiful china is hiding there. No, you have no need to decorate with all those beautiful teapots, teacups and other pretties you seem to have in abundance. That pumpkin bread looks delicious. One of my favourite veggies is pumpkin.

  17. Yes, I'm trying not to buy new dishes either! Your teapot is the cutest and I love the calico cup! I believe my recipe is the same as yours and it is tried and true. I do love pumpkin bread and with whipping cream, yes please! I'm wishing I had some right now for breakfast!

  19. Love your decor - the teapot, c/s and the needlepoint pillow - old friends, indeed! A good pumpkin bread is like banana bread - hard to find. I am pinning this, as I trust anything you vouch for must be good! Cissy must love coming to your home after school - you always have fun things for her to do. ♥

  26. Oh how I LOVE pumpkin bread!! It's not in my diet plan right now but I'm saving your recipe anyway! I'm kind of with you on the decorations. I really don't buy much new any more and in fact, I'm getting rid of a lot when I do decorate. You know, things I haven't put out in years! Your pumpkin and leaf plate are so pretty!

  28. You have an abundance of golden beauties to bring out for each occasion, Kitty, every tea party is perfectly lovely! I always enjoy seeing which teapot and teacup you will be using. Love pumpkin bread so much, it looks very moist and delicious, a perfect treat for this time of year, and the cream cheese spread would be perfect on top! Always a delight to visit with you :)

  29. Kitty, I can't wait to make your pumpkin bread! I've been trying to find a recipe and am thrilled you posted one. Have a nice weekend my friend. I have my annual Scoots together, and we will be in the Berkshires. xo

  30. Kitty, I love pumpkin bread, cake, muffins, pie, etc! And your pumpkin teapot is adorable. I think you're really smart to not keep buying new decorations every year for various occasions, especially when what you already have is perfect.

  34. How adorable Cissy's pumpkin head people. Pumpkin bread is so good. It makes me happy with the lovely flavor and the wonderful aroma of the spices. Loving the sweet teapot. You always create such a pretty vignette Kitty. Happy weekend.

  35. I've been making pumpkin bread for years as well. It's my favorite quick bread. This last time I tried to make it "healthier." Not a good idea. Don't mess with perfection, right? I think my recipe is the same as yours. It's a good one.
    I love how you don't buy decor anymore; just bring out the favorites. The favorites are the ones with all the good memories.
    And congratulations on the new little one I saw on FB. How very special. <3 Deborah

  36. Pumpkin time is here and Kitty is leading the way! Lovely! Kitty, my computer hard drive appears deceased so no blog party this week. I thank you for always participating and sharing your lovely fall tea wares. Love Calico in the brown (I have a few of those too)!
