Pumpkin Bread in the Bread Machine

This pumpkin bread is really more a cake than a bread, and it tastes great with cream cheese or butter spread on it. I bake it in the bread machine on the "quick" cycle. The quick cycle runs for about 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Pumpkin Bread in the Bread Machine
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

I usually mix the ingredients in a separate bowl before I put them in the bread machine pan, just to make sure they are well mixed:
Mix the first 4 ingredients together, blend well. Stir in the baking powder, soda, salt, spices, and flour just until mixed. Pour batter into the bread machine pan and set on quick bread cycle.

When the bread is done, avoid dropping it onto its head when taking it out of the pan. Let cool on a rack or plate. This bread keeps well in the fridge and is nice and moist.
