Take A Bite Of: Momcatt's Pumpkin Bread

One of my favorite baked goods coming out of my Mom's kitchen. And since Fall is being ushered in, this is a perfect treat for this season and the holidays. I also make mini loaves to give away. Perfect alone, slightly more perfect with butter, and if you want a twist, try a little cream cheese. Heaven. And the days I am really missing my Mom, this is a go to item. Filling our kitchen with the same great smell.

Since this is our last day in Seattle, I hope I get some of this to take home. (HINT HINT MOM!)
I need pumpkin bread to soothe us on the l-o-n-g plane ride back to Atlanta.

Buon Appetito!

And Happy Labor Day weekend.

Momcatt's Pumpkin Bread

Ingredients:

3 c. sugar
1 c. oil ( I use canola)
4 eggs
1 1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1 t nutmeg
2 t (rounded) baking soda
2 c. pumpkin (or you can use 1 15oz can of Libby)
2/3 c water

Mix together

Add 3 1/2 c flour. Mix until moistened.

Pour into greased loaf pans. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.

And just try to share some ok?

Kristina P. said...

I love fall so much, especially because pumpkin comes back!

Laoch of Chicago said...

One of my cats loves Pumpkin. I wonder if I could make this for her?

ladytruth said...

When I was still at varsity my mom would always bake four loaves of banana bread for me and the friends to devour during the week. I gained so much weight in my first year partly due to the fact that I just ate all of the loaves myself because I missed home so much! Have a safe trip back; I'm sure it will be hard to say good bye to the family after a week of fun :(

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

Oh Gosh... I make this bread for my kids and you are not kidding about it being delish. I like to bring it camping and slather it with cream cheese FROSTING for a special breakfast/dessert treat. Yum-olicious.

Miss Eve said...

Ops! Thanks for the recipe and have a great weekend :-)

Much love: Evi

The Gman said...

You hit the spot JennyMac! I am so over summer and eagerly waiting for my favorite season to finally come. I love baking and pumpkin recipes. So thank you for sharing!!

Vodka Logic said...

And gawd knows the microscopic package of nuts you will get on the plane won't be sustaining. Can I have a loaf too. :)

PS I hinted to my mom on FB (yes she is on Facebook) and got a blueberry pie her last visit.

Jules said...

Ok, I TOTALLY can bake. So I'm going to be trying this recipe.

Safe travels home!!

And I guess I'm supposed to remind you to pack your undies because the word verification is "undys".

Eve said...

I wish so very very much that the UK sold pumpkin pie mix....So very very much.

Not The Rockefellers said...

Immediately!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you and MomCatt !

Safe travels

Peace -Rene

I love pumpkin bread. This looks very similar to my Grandma's recipe which I love.

Unknown Mami said...

The only problem is if I make this then I'll be expected to make it all the time.

The Savage said...

Old school food porn! Lovin' It....

Amanda said...

Sounds like a great recipe to try. I love that you're so excited by autumn and pumpkin. I got just as big a kick yesterday at our local market to see the first asparagus. Must be spring!

La La La Leah said...

For something fun throw some chocolate chips in the batter! I can't believe I was the first to say that.

la aventurista said...

Wow that looks totally yummy. ;)

My name is PJ. said...

I am a HUUUUUUUUUUUGE fan of breads: pumpkin, zucchini, tomato soup, fill in the blank!

Momcatt has it going on!

Mr. Charleston said...

We used to have a Japanese Persimmon tree in our yard (they're the big, fat, juicy kind). I once used them in the same recipe and boy was it delicious.

Mommy Mac said...

Me and pumkin jive because of it's color...that's about it.

Pumpkin pie: you can't make me.
Pumpkin bread: nu-uh.
Pumpkin on my feet: thankyouverymuch.


Although, I sense my taste buds changing. I actually had pumpkin/flax seed french toast the other morning, and I liked it.

So, I'll give Momcatt's recipe a whirl. Cream cheese is a Godsend, no?

Stephanie Faris said...

If you have any extra, just mail it to Maryland, k? Thanks = )

Sounds like a great recipe for fall.

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Thanks for stopping by and sharing a cocktail with ShaMoo - she's obviously dwelling on her completely rotten day (almost a year ago!). I don't blame her though, I remember every detail because it was just so awful. heehee.

Your Mom's pumpkin bread... well I can almost smell it already. I will definitely be making some of this very soon!!! I'm so over summer (not that we had much of one this year) and ready to move on to Autumn, wearing cozy sweaters, and having rosy cheeks.

Glad you had a fantastic trip! And thanks for blogging during - we all appreciate it!

S3XinthePantry said...

Smooches,

Yumma yumma!! I actually was thinking about making pumpkin bread today. No joke! Now I will for sure!

confused homemaker said...

Pumpkin bread and muffins are so good. My MIL makes an amazing pumpkin bread for the holidays & it makes me so sad that my Mamacita is allergic to pumpkins (and a host of other yummy things).

Kristin said...

Oh, heck yeah. I'm all over all things pumpkin. I have consumed my fair share of pumpkin spice lattes this week. Ah ha. That bread is calling my name!

Helen Ginger said...

Oh, man, pumpkin bread. I was resisting until I saw the picture. Good thing I'm heading to the grocery store today. I'll copy the recipe. Warm pumpkin bread with cream cheese for breakfast tomorrow.

Melissa G. said...

Ohh pumpkin bread! This is one of my favorites too! My recipe is a little different so i'm looking forward to trying your sometime.
Since we're living in Northern Ireland right now we can't get canned pumpkin! So i've been using sweet potato instead and with the spices it tastes almost the same!

Thanks for visiting my blog and taking time to leave a comment! It's nice to meet you! And thank you for your prayers!

Asianmommy said...

Mmm...love pumpkin bread!

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

If you carry that pumpkin bread onto the plane, you better bring extra pieces to pass around because everyone’s mouth will be watering for some!

Nap Warden said...

NOM NOM NOM:P

Shanna said...

Hey thanks for stopping by and saying hello! I read your profile and am envious that you can dance! I'm all arms and legs!

Wendy Hawksley said...

Thanks for stopping by and, oh my goodness, time for pumpkin bread already? Yes! That is probably my favorite bread ever! We are so ready for autumn here.

Probably because it means an end to the jungle-like Korean heat and humidity. ;)

Share some of the scrumptious pumpkin bread? Maybe. A teeny bite...

Dustjacket Attic said...

Thanks JM for comment, much better thanks darling. xxx

Oh, yum!! I hope mom delivered. And that you made it back to Atlanta without any hiccups.

I did see this weekend that Starbucks has brought back their pumpkin spice latte - guess where I'm going tomorrow right after dropping the kiddos off at school.

Melissa said...

My youngest loves pumpkin bread above all things. Except me, of course. I will have to make up a batch of this as soon as I get back home! Sounds delish!

M-Cat said...

Why haven't I found you before? I stopped by to thank you for your kind comment, and found myself immersed in your post writings for waaaaaaayyy too long. I'm starting to get the stink eye from Splenda....

You're a fun read, and I'll be back around!

Thanks again

Keith said...

ooooh, that looks yummy!! **Writing down the recipe**

Mark said...

Yum! Thanks for sharing.

Heavenly Housewife said...

I've never had pumpkin bread. Those Libby cans are real specialty items here in the UK. Love the use of the cinnamon and nutmeg. I bet this really tastes of autumn.

Green-Eyed Momster said...

I can almost smell it! Sounds delicious! I'll have to try making it on a cold day...or tomorrow!

Hugs!!

Alicia said...

Oh, I love pumpkin anything! I'll have to try this recipe!!

Tammy Howard said...

Oh how I loves me some pumpkin bread!!!

Cocaine Princess said...

Good grief I love Pumpkin Bread with creme cheese! It such a fall/harvest time eating delight. It's not so delightful eating it in the summertime though.

Bert | Brochure Printing said...

It was really nutritious Pumpkin Bread. Good for health and perfect treat for this season and the holidays
