Libby’s Recipes – Pumpkin Bread
This easy pumpkin bread recipe has easily been one of my most favorite recipes my mom made growing up. I’m going to admit something crazy to you. I don’t like pumpkin pie, there I said it! I’m not entirely sure why but it’s just never been my favorite. But throw all of those spices and a can of pumpkin into a batch of pumpkin bread and it turns into my most favorite fall recipe!
After I moved to Minnesota I was introduced to pumpking bars with the cream cheese frosting. I must admit I am a pumpkin bread purist. I prefer just the simplicity and delicious flavor of the pumpkin bread itself!
29 oz can pumpkin recipe
We like to use Libby’s 100% Pure Canned Pumpkin in this recipe. You can either use the large 29 oz can or two of the smaller 15 oz cans. The recipe calls for an angel food cake pan plus 1 loaf pan for baking. You can also use 3 loaf pans which is typically what we choose to do.
How can I tell if my Pumpkin Bread is done?
The best way to see if your pumpkin bread is done is to pull it out of the oven and stick either a knife in the center of the loaf. If knife comes out clean (or with a few crumbs) the pumpkin bread is done. If the knife comes out looking like the mix you originally poured into your loaf pan, keep on cooking!
Can I leave Pumpkin Bread out overnight?
You can leave your pumpkin bread out overnight but you want to be sure to wrap it appropriately or put it in a plastic bag to keep it from drying out. Any loaves that are going to take you longer than a couple of days to eat you should definitely store in the fridge or the freezer.
Do you put pumpkin bread in the fridge?
Yes you can and should store your pumpkin bread in the fridge. For maximum shelf life this bread can be stored in the refridgerator or freezer. Honestly I love pumpkin bread just as much cold as warm! This bread is delicious both warm or cold and with a glass of milk! My mom with actually wrap the other 2 loaves in tin foil and put 2 in the freezer until she’s ready to enjoy those. She will usually just let it thaw out a little bit and then enjoy it cold but of course it is also delicious right out of the oven! For another cozy fall recipe check out this Easy Spiced Cider!
