Delicious Pumpkin Bread

In honor of fall and the holiday season upon us, I thought I'd leave the real estate talk for a moment and share with you my favorite recipe for pumpkin bread.  Yum!

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

 

Ingredients

4 ounces cream chees, softened

1/4 cup butter

1 1/4 cups white sugar

2 eggs

1 cup canned pumpkin

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Grease one 9x5x3 loaf pan.  In mixing bowl, combine softened cheese, butter and sugar. Cream together well.  Beat in eggs one at a time until blended. Mix in pumpkin.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves and walnuts.  Stir until thoroughly mixed.  Combine all at once with batter.  Stir just enough to moisten.  Pour into greased pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes until inserted toothpick comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes in pan.
