Pumpkin Loaf with Rum

It has become somewhat of a tradition for me to bake a loaf of pumpkin bread on September 1st of every year. After the horribly hot summer we had this year, that began in early May, robbing us of spring, I was only too happy to jump on the pumpkin bandwagon Saturday morning and whip up a loaf.
Pumpkin Loaf with Rum

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon
pumpkin pie spice
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 cup pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/3 cup dark rum

Preheat oven to 350° F.


Spray
loaf pan with nonstick spray; set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together first five ingredients; set aside. In a large mixing bowl whisk together sugar and oil. Add eggs, one at a time, whisking to combine. Whisk in pumpkin.

With a wooden spoon, slowly stir in flour mixture alternately with the rum, beginning and ending with flour. Stir until
combined, do not over mix.

Pour batter into prepared pan, and bake in preheated oven for one hour to one hour and 15 minutes until it tests done. Allow to cool in pan five minutes, and then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.


If you prefer your pumpkin loaf to be more on the decadent side, then you will love this chocolate-studded Harvest Pumpkin Loaf.

I bet it's very moist. The rum - oh man I'll have to try that in my next batch.
I just can't bring myself to make either zucchini or pumpkin bread right now, because I know I will eat on it until I'm ill. I love quick breads SO much.
