Pumpkin Gingerbread

It's that time of year - time to bake with pumpkin! In one Saturday morning, I made two delicious new pumpkin recipes, and this was one. This tasty quickbread only uses 1 stick of butter for two loaves - the pumpkin and molasses provide moisture and wonderful flavor. Perfect with a cup of coffee or hot cocoa, this will become a staple treat or breakfast food quickly! Stay tuned for more pumpkin later this week!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
4 tsp. ginger
3 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 15 oz. can pumpkin puree
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup molasses
2 Tbsp finely minced candied ginger
4 eggs, beaten
6 Tbsp. water

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In another bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, melted butter, sugar, molasses, candied ginger, eggs, and water. Gradually stir in the flour mixture, and stir just until incorporated.

Divide the batter between two greased loaf pans and bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then gently run a knife around the edge of the loaves and invert them onto a wire rack. Let cool completely on the rack. Makes 2 loaves.
