Good & Gather (Target) Pumpkin Bread

This recipe comes from the back of the Target brand Good & Gather’s Organic 100% pumpkin. And it is DELICIOUS!

Hands-on Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1-1 1/2 hours
Makes 2 loaves

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 (15-oz) can 100% pumpkin puree
(Optional): 1 cup chocolate chips or nuts

Heat oven to 350F. Spray two 9×5 inch loaf pans with nonstick spray.

Wish flour, spice, soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients, stirring until well blended. Divide batter evenly between the two prepared pans.

Bake 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cetner comes out clean. Cool in pans about 15 minutes, remove to a wire rack and cool complete.

Note: this recipe freezes wonderfully! Wrap the loaf in plastic wrap and foil, and freeze for up to 3 months.
