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.
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!
