Mini Pumpkin Bread

It is that time of the year again where pumpkins are in an abundance and there seems to be a never ending supply of pumpkin recipes. This year I’ve resigned myself from making over the top pumpkin desserts and instead I figured something simple and quick would be the thing. So a quick and easy pumpkin bread came to mind. And I found the perfect recipe by EugenieKitchen.

Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:

IMG_6558

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree (I’ll be using 1 15 oz. can)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin spice
  • pumpkin seeds or even melted chocolate

Step 1: In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy.

Step 5: Add the dry ingredients all at once into the butter mixture and fold to combine. (Optional: may add in nuts, dried fruit, or chocolate chips and fold into the mixture)

Step 9: Allow bread to cool for 20 minutes before serving. (They should just pop out of the baking cups easily)
