LUCY POTHIER– GRZEXP
One of the best things about Fall is Thanksgiving. One of the things that is most tasty this time of year is anything to do with pumpkin. So I would like to share my favorite pumpkin recipe: Pumpkin Bread from my Grandmother, Linda Eyre.
- To start you will need…
- A mixing bowl, a spoon, a bowl, an oven, and pans to bake it in
2. Next, in order to measure all the ingredients you need the following things:
- A cup measurer
- A ½ cup measurer
- A ⅓ cup measurer
3. To make the bread, first you must first preheat the oven to 350.
4. While it is heating, mix these things in your mixing bowl:
- 3 c. of sugar
- ½ c. of oil
- ½ c. of Applesauce
- 1 can (2 cups) of Pumpkin
- 4 eggs (crack 4 eggs into a small bowl so that you can make sure that no shells get in, then pour them into the mixing bowl)
5. As you mix it, add:
- 3 ⅓ c. of Flour
- ½ tsp. Baking Powder
- 2 tsps. Baking Soda
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 1 tsp. Cloves
- 1 tsp. Nutmeg
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon
- 2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips (If you don’t want chocolate chips, leave them out)
6. Then pour the batter into the pans slowly so that the batter doesn’t get everywhere
7. Put the pans in the oven and set a timer for them to cook for 25 minutes
8. Take out of oven when it is golden and doughy and Enjoy!
This incredible and amazing tasty treat is my favorite “breakfast dessert” because it’s sweet but not too sweet, so, so tasty, and cooks in only 25 minutes. It’s the kind of dessert that when you eat it you never want to stop because of the spices and the semi-sweet chocolate chips within. I also love it because it’s filled with many, many memories of making it with friends and family.
