It's Fall Ya'll and I'm going home to Tennessee tomorrow. I'm taking along some special treats and I'm so pleased that they came out so yummy and pretty! Pumpkin Bread is the simplest thing in the world to make - especially if you take a few short cuts!
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 1/2 cups Bisquick
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 t pumpkin pie spice
That's all there is to it! Mix your ingredients well and place into a well greased (Bakers Secret) loaf pan. Bake for 55 minutes at 350*.
If you want to go extra fancy, put some streusel topping on your bread at the 40 minute mark.
1/2 stick of butter (softened)
1/2 cup white sugar1/2 cup brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
1 t sugar1/4 t nutmeg
Use a fork to combine the sugar and spices with pats of softened butter. You mixture should come to a crumbly consistency. Place on top of your bread at the 40 minute mark and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
The key to any food gift is pretty presentation. Cool the bread completely on a wire rack then wrap her up! I wrap my breads in clear cellophane and add raffia, burlap or ribbon (or all three :) and be sure to tape the back seam closed to keep your bread fresh. All presents are more special if you wrap them to be pretty!
