Spice Bread

This is great for Thanksgiving dinner!

Bread Ingredients:
3 cups of sugar
4 eggs (lightly beaten)
1 cup of vegetable oil
1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin
3 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
1/2 cup of milk
1 cup of diced walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray your bundt pan (or 9″ x 5″ loaf pans) with cooking spray and set aside. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, ginger and cloves in a large mixing bowl. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, eggs, vegetable oil and pumpkin. Mix the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture. Stir in milk. Add walnuts. Spoon into your prepared pan(s). Bake for 60 minutes – or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Glaze Ingredients:
2 cups of confectioners’ (powdered) sugar
1/4 cup of milk

While the bread is baking, prepare the glaze by combining confectioner’s sugar with milk. Drizzle over the top of the bread –be sure to turn it upside down if you’re using a bundt pan– once it’s cooled off.

  1. Guys, guys. The chili pictures were bad enough, but now you’re just making me unbearably hungry.

    The glaze would turn out better if you use the same amount of heavy whipping cream instead of milk… tastes much better. Also, Pumpkin Spice is just Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Ginger and Cloves… so just more pumpkin spice wouldn’t change the flavor and would save your other spices.

    This is a great WoW Recipe! Thanks!

  3. @Dyvion: Thanks for the tips! I totally didn’t know that (still learning :D ) – so I’ll adjust next time. I’ll have to figure out how much of each is in it (I just grabbed it at the store and added to my recipe! LOL) cuz the spices turned out really nice.

    @GMW: lol it was really good – and I’m totally not a huge pumpkin fan. :)

  4. More cinnamon!
