Yankee Pumpkin Bread

The Saturday before Thanksgiving I make this bread, freezing two of the three loaves. It always tastes better the day after I make it, although in my house there’s rarely any left the next day. One note about pumpkin – whenever I am working with pumpkin I feel compelled to add a dash of cardamom. At Thanksgiving my house is redolent with the scent – I put it in the pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, and can’t help adding a few pods to the coffee and tea pot. It’s a spice that I rarely use the rest of the year, but feels specific and precious to the holiday. As always with spices – buy the absolute best quality you can afford, in their whole form if possible – and if they’ve been in your pantry for a year – Get. Rid. Of. Them. Spices are precious and contain volatile oils – freshness matters.  I buy most of my spices from Penzey’s , you can find them online if they don’t have a retail store near you.  www.penzeys.com

*Editor’s note: You can now visit Savory Spice Shop in Santa Fe to purchase up to 650+ different spices from around the world.

Yankee Pumpkin Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 C. vegetable oil (I use safflower)
  • 2/3 C. water
  • 3 C. sugar
  • 3 ½ C. AP flour
  • 2 t. baking soda
  • 1 ½ t. salt
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1 t. ground nutmeg
  • ½ t. ground cloves
  • ½ t. ground ginger
  • ¼ t. ground cardamom

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter and flour three 7x3 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, measure out and whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and cardamom. Add the dry ingredients into the pumpkin and mix until just blended.
  3. Pour into the prepared pans. *Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Notes

*All ovens bake differently – so check your bread at 40 minutes to see if you’ll need 10 minutes or 15 minutes more.

  • #Repost @immalittlebunny from our fabulous pop-up on Sunday. Allison killed it with these wontons! ・・・ Thanks a billion to @ediblesantafe for asking me to cook for their Women & Creativity event tonight @savoryspiceshop. Everyone really seemed to enjoy all the food and were genuinely interested in everything. Big thanks to the potters who made some incredible one of a kind plates for our food. This is one out of two dishes I made for the night: @santafefarmersmarket roasted purple and orange carrots with local bacon and a spicy Thai mayo sauce (using eggs from Santa Fe!) garnished with local daikon sprouts. Wontons were deep fried and super crunchy! 📸:@deadwolfbones #ediblenm #popup #popupdinner #pottery #wonton #carrots #eatlocal #santafe #newmexico #collaboration #simplysantafe #handmade #santafefarmersmarket
