Spicy Pumpkin Bread

Recipe by Emily
READY IN: 1hr 15mins
YIELD: 2 loaves




  • Preheat oven to 350º.
  • Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.
  • Combine flour and spices (flour through cloves) in a large bowl.
  • Add sugar and the next 6 ingredients (sugar through pumpkin) in a different bowl, and stir well with a whisk or mixer until smooth.
  • Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
  • Spoon batter into 2 (8 × 4-inch) loaf pans coated with cooking spray.
  • Bake at 350º for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cool loaves in pans 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pans.
  • Cool loaves completely; cut each loaf into 12 slices.
  • You may also cook in small loaf pans or muffin tins, reduce cooking time to 30-35 min.
  • Check for doneness.
  • NOTES: If you're tempted to fiddle with the spices (maybe substitute pumpkin-pie spice for the allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves), please don't.
  • I tried it both ways and it wasn't as good.
