When the crisp air rolls in and the leaves begin to change their colors, you know autumn has arrived. "What if" you relocated to a tropical state to support your family, and your yard now has coconut trees instead of oak trees? Well, my baking just became my seasonal indicator.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or 175 C. Spray loaf pans with non-stick spray and flour all 7x3 inch pans.
In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, sugar, eggs, oil, and milk. To avoid a mess in the kitchen, I ALWAYS add my dry ingredients in the same bowl. To ensure the ingredients are well-blended, begin by adding half of the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices and give it a GOOD stir.Next, add the remaining flour and stir until the mixture is well-blended.
Place in oven and begin checking the pumpkin bread at around 45 minutes. Loaves are done when your inserted knife comes out clean.
