This weekend my friend gave me the lovely gift of a DELICIOUS pumpkin bread loaf. It left me feeling totally inspired. I’ve seen so many autumn pumpkin recipes; cupcakes, bread, even whoopie pies. I did some research and I found the most divine recipe for Pumpkin Bread from one of my favorite blogs called Honey & Jam. I hope you get a chance to try it!
Pumpkin Bread with Cinnamon Pecan Filling
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 2 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp ground allspice
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cups canned pumpkin purée
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cup milk
For the Filling:
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1/2 chopped pecans
- 1/2 stick butter, melted
To make filling: Combine sugar, cinnamon, pecans and butter in small bowl, mix to combine.
For bread: Preheat the oven to 350ºF and coat your pans with butter. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and soda, spices, and salt, set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle, combine the pumpkin and sugars. Mix until well combined, and then add the eggs and oil. Mix until incorporated, scraping down the sides as needed. With the mixer on low, add the flour in two batches, alternating with the milk, and mix until just combined.
Fill loaf pans half way, add filling, top with remaining batter.
Bake for 55-60 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through. A cake tester should come out clean. Cool the pans on a rack for ten minutes, remove the loaves from the pans, and cool completely.
NOTE: This recipe makes 2 loaves
