How to make homemade pumpkin loves.
Begin by sifting together the dry ingredients. By sifting together the flour and the spices, the flour is aerated perfectly, and the spices blend in nicely.
You will then cream together the butter and the sugar. Once the butter and sugar have been combined, you will mix in the eggs one at a time.
You will then add in the canned pumpkin to the mix, and combine well. Then you will begin to slowly add the seasoned flour.
After the flour is combined, pour into two loaf pans, and bake for about 1 hour.
I hope you enjoy my Grandmother’s favorite pumpkin loaves, enjoy a perfectly spiced pumpkin bread warm out of the oven.
