Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 large bread pans.
  2. Beat sugar, pumpkin, eggs, water, applesauce, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract together in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, cloves, and ginger together in a separate bowl; stir into the pumpkin mixture until just combined. Fold walnuts into the resulting batter; pour into prepared bread pans.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pans for 5 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil to store.

I cut this recipe in half to ten servings. Instead of water, I used unsweetened Tazo vanilla rooibus tea and I doubled the amount of spices. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. I made muffins out of this instead of one loaf--I did get 12 muffins from one recipe. Baked at 350*, these were done at exactly 20 minutes. Very moist and flavorful pumpkin bread recipe.

I'm sorry to give this a low rating, but it didn't come out well in my bread machine. I'll have to update my rating when I make it again in my regular oven. I used half the amount of sugar (brown sugar instead of white), and it was still quite sweet, so I'll with that proportion in the future. Also, I used one mashed banana to replace about 1/4 cup oil. The flavors were great, but the texture was kind of dense and wet, but that is likely due to my bread machine rather than the recipe itself. Will try again!
