Pumpkin Bread

I picked up a can of pumpkin because it’s November and I’ve always wanted to make pumpkin bread. I found a recipe on Southern Food. I omitted the cloves and added 1/2 cup walnuts. I also added 1 tsp. vanilla extract.


  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

You’re supposed to beat it with the mixer but I didn’t have one, so I did it all by hand. Probably not such a good idea….the bread came out tasty but a bit rubbery. Egh. I’ll definitely use the mixer next time!
