Pumpkin Bread

Something about the cooler weather says baking and Fall says make something with pumpkin. There are lots of recipes out there so I just picked one and made a couple changes. This bread is really good, very moist and flavourful. It gets better if it sits a day or two. I like making mini loaves, They bake better and you can give them away and people enjoy just having a small taste and not having to eat an entire loaf.This recipe made 6 mini loaves.
Pumpkin Bread
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

2 cups of pumpkin puree (almost one large can)

Mix moist ingredients. Mix dry ingredients.
Mix the 2 together. Pour into 6 prepared mini loaf pans or 2 large loaf pans.
Bake at 350F for 40 to 45 minutes or until pick comes out clean
