DC Ladies Share Fall Family Memories & Recipes! Pumpkin Bread!

DC Ladies Blog recently featured a post that was part recipe and part family memories. It made me stop and pause to think about the recipes that I got from my mom (thankfully she’s willing to share the cookbooks)

Growing up my mom’s pumpkin bread was the first taste of fall. Let me remind you, growing up in Florida means 80 degree weather versus 90 degree weather, but it doesn’t mean you don’t know and love the flavors of fall.

This is a favorite, it makes two loaves so it’s perfect to have one, and save another for a later date or freeze for the following weekend.

Indian Pumpkin Bread

1 cup sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
2 cups canned pumpkin
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup white or yellow cornmeal
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup of raisins (preferably golden)


Preheat oven to 325

I do this in one bowl for the easiest prep just about ever. In a large bowl blend sugars and oil and add the egg until it’s light and fluffy. When it has reached a warm golden tone add the pumpkin puree. When the wet ingredients are fully combine the dry ingredients. Add the raisins, and if you prefer you can add walnuts as well, but I generally skip this.

The batter can be divided into two greased and floured loaf pans. They bake for 60 minutes.

I love this served warm with a pad of butter or a smear of cream cheese, and of course shared with a friend.

Let me know how you like it
