Thank you for stopping by for Tea Time Tuesday.
Today we are celebrating the arrival of autumn with one of my favorite autumn recipes...
my Grandmother's Pumpkin Bread.
There's nothing like a tasty tea bread to enjoy with a cup of tea in the afternoon!
For a taste of autumn, my Grandmother's Pumpkin Bread is wonderful paired with an apple, cinnamon spice blend, Constant Comment or pumpkin ginger flavored tea.
I do hope you'll try it with your favorite autumn tea blend!
Here's my Grandmother's recipe:
1- 1/2 C. Sugar
1/2 C. Canola Oil
1/3 C. Water
1 C. Canned Pumpkin
Sift & Stir:
1/2 t. Salt
1 t. Nutmeg Ground
1 t. Cinnamon
1 t. Cloves Ground
1 t. Baking Soda
1/2 t. Baking Powder
1- 2/3 C. Flour
1 C. Chopped Pecans or Walnuts
In a pre-heated 350 degree oven, bake in a greased loaf pan for 75 to 90 minutes. You can check for doneness with a toothpick test in the center of the bread. When the toothpick comes out clean it is ready. Do not over bake.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful tea bread with your favorite "cuppa"!
My Mother loves to serve it with cream cheese and chutney.
