So here goes: In a mixing bowl you cream butter and sugar.
Then you're going to add in your eggs. Mix that well.
Then add your vanilla to your wet mixture, and all of the spices and baking soda/powder to the dry mixture.
Next, put loaves in a preheated 350 degree oven, and check after an hour. Mine usually takes about an hour and 15 minutes, but some ovens vary, so make sure to check at the hour mark.
Then, out will come your delicious, yummy, bread!
Go ahead and have a slice while it's warm, just be careful cutting it. Use a knife with a serrated blade. And a word of caution...it's addicting.
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons of ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon of allspice
1 (16oz) can solid pack pumpkin (I used 15oz)
Directions: In a bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add in the eggs and mix well. Add in vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. (Go ahead and sift if you feel you should do so). Stir the dry ingredients in the creamed mixture, half at a time to make the mixing easier. Stir just until moistened. Add in the pumpkin. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans and bake at 350- checking at an hour. Stick a toothpick in the loaves to check for doneness.
Hope you enjoy this recipe. I made them last night, and almost a whole loaf is already gone. YUMMY!
