Fall is my favorite season full of rick colored clothing and tasty foods.. To start out fall today im making.. Pumpkin Bread!!
Makes approximately 12 muffins or 1 large loaf
1 15 oz. can pureed pumpkin
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups chopped walnuts or chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350.
~Combine the pumpkin, brown sugar, butter, and eggs and mix until creamy.
~In a separate bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients except the nuts or chocolate chips.
~Mix all but 1 cup of the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, then add as much of the last cup as necessary to achieve the proper consistency (moist, but thick enough to stand a spoon in).
~Add the nuts or chocolate chips and stir in.
~ Pour or spoon the batter into greased muffin tins or bread pan.
~ Bake on the center rack until a toothpick poked into the center comes out dry. Muffins should take between 20 and 25 minutes to bake and full sized loaves between 50 minutes and 1 hour.
