best. pumpkin. bread. ever.

so, the fella really loves pumpkin bread but i have never been quite satisfied with any of the recipes we’ve tried. so i went with the tried and true method of googling “best pumpkin bread” and found this recipe.

HOLY SMOKES.

it is delicious!!! the crust is a little crispy, but it is the softest, moist-est (is that a word?) bread EVER. the recipe calls for oil instead of butter and also has water – i think that’s the trick. it has more spices than other pumpkin bread recipes i’ve tried, and the flavor is perfect. it did take longer than the recipe – about 65 minutes instead of 50 (i have an oven thermometer and it was exactly 350).

since i’ve been *trying to lose weight, i calculated the nutrition info for the recipe. the recipe makes two loaves and i got 15 slices per loaf (fairly thin slices). they are approximately 210 calories per slice. i *may* have adjusted the servings (slice sizes) until they equaled 210 calories per slice because that just so happened to be exactly how many calories i had left for the day. 🙂

this is officially now my go-to pumpkin bread recipe. love it!

*side note: i’ve been using myfitnesspal to track my calories and workouts and i love it! it has virtually every food imaginable, including dishes from chain restaurants. just being aware of my calories has helped me to get things under control – and earning “extra” calories from workouts has been a huge motivator!

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
