November is the beginning of the holiday and baking season. I don’t make a lot of pumpkin stuff, but I might this year.
1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
1/2 cup melted butter
3 large eggs
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon fine sea or table salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Heaped 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
Heaped 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Two pinches of ground cloves
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 6-cup loaf pan or coat it with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, melted butter, eggs and sugar until smooth. Sprinkle baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinanmon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves over batter and whisk until well-combined. Add flour and stir with a spoon, just until mixed. Scrape into prepared pan and smooth the top. In a small dish, or empty measuring cup, stir sugar and cinnamon together. Sprinkle over top of batter.
Bake bread for 65 to 75 minutes until a tester poked into all parts of cake (both the top and center will want to hide pockets of uncooked batter) come out batter-free, turning the cake once during the baking time for even coloring.
Let it cool for about 30 minutes in the pan and then let it finish on a rack but try not to pick off the topping.
