It's all about the Pumpkin!

Doesn't this just look like the YUMMIEST pumpkin bread you've ever seen?
Can't find where I found the recipe,
but it was out there in BLOGLAND somewhere, so if it was yours, let me know so I can give you credit....but in the meantime....let's just make some and take it to your neighbors, or VT ladies or HT families.

Pumpkin Bread

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
3 eggs
1 can(15 oz) Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin(not pumpkin pie filling)
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 to 1 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350.
Lightly grease TWO 8 x 3 3/4 x 2 pans (those disposable foil ones at the store)
Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
Add the vanilla
Add the eggs, one at a time.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour,salt,baking powder,pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet, alternating with the buttermilk, starting and ending with the flour.
Fold in the pumpkin and toasted walnuts.
Equally pour into the pans and top with crumb mixture (recipe below).
Bake for 50-60 minutes, until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup oatmeal (1 package of instant oatmeal)
1/2 cup walnuts

In a medium bowl, combine 1st five ingredients with a pastry blender or 2 forks, so it resembles, well "crumbles".
Mix in oatmeal and walnuts

OK - I baked two loaves yesterday evening. I used toasted pecans instead of walnuts (didn't have enough walnuts) and I put chocolate chips in one loaf as well. They were sooo good!
