Instructions on Making the Pumpkin Bread
Following the instructions on how to make this pumpkin bread is simple and straightforward. You will first preheat the oven to 325 °F. You will want to place an oven rack in the middle position of the oven. Next, you will grease and flour two 8 x 4 loaf pans.
Then in a medium bowl, you will mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices with a whisk and set aside. The next step you will do is to beat the sugar and butter on medium speed with an electric mixer in a larger bowl. After the butter and sugar as been blended well, you will add the eggs one at a time. Once you have beaten the eggs until the mixture is fluffy and light, you will blend in the pumpkin.
After the pumpkin has been mixed in, you will take the flour mixture that was in the small bowl and add it to the mixture in the larger bowl, mixing on low speed. Then you will pour the mixture into the two loaf pans and bake for 65-75 minutes. When you take the loaves out of the oven, you should allow them to cool in the pans for 10 minutes. The loaves should then be ready to slice and eat.
