Description

This flavorful, moist pumpkin bread is perfect as is, and even better with a little spread of butter (or for an extra special touch, make some whipped cinnamon butter!).

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BREAD:
  • ½ cups Butter, Melted And Slightly Cooled
  • ½ cups Sour Cream
  • 4 whole Large Eggs
  • 1-½ cup Sugar
  • 1-½ cup Brown Sugar
  • ⅔ cups Milk
  • 2 cups Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3-½ cups Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • FOR THE BUTTER:
  • ½ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease 2 large loaf pans (and possibly 1 small one as well).

In a large bowl, mix together the butter, sour cream, eggs, sugars, milk, pumpkin and vanilla until well blended.

In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just fully moistened.

Pour the batter into the greased loaf pans, about 3/4 full. (If you have extra batter, depending on the size of your loaf pans, pour it into a mini loaf pan or small oven-proof dish and bake it alongside the others, checking it much sooner for doneness, of course!)

Bake for 55-65 minutes, or just until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.

While the bread is cooling, make the cinnamon butter. In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, cinnamon and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Serve along with the sliced pumpkin bread!

I’m a little nervous about how much sugar is in this batter; that is to say, it’s just shy of one part sugar to one part sugar. It’s really sweet! Is that what you intended? Thanks, Pam J-B

Great recipe! Easy to make and turned out beautifully. I added mini cinnamon and chocolate chips to one loaf and it was even better!
