Saturday Morning Pumpkin Bread


You can make this in one bowl and just sprinkle on the topping.  I’m thinking you serve it with cream cheese.


1 cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1-3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
½ cup melted butter
⅓ cup milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350F. Butter and flour a 9″x5″ loaf pan.

Whisk together sugars, flour, spices, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the bowl. Add the wet ingredients. Whisk, starting with the wet ingredients and working your way to the outside of the bowl, mixing until batter is smooth but not over-mixed.

Pour batter into the loaf pan and sprinkle with cinnamon, brown sugar, and walnuts. Bake for 55-65 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then cool on a rack until ready to serve.

I worked with this recipe.
