Pumpkin Recipes

I love baking with pumpkin!  It adds so much flavor and moistness to your baked goods.  Since I've had a few requests for my pumpkin recipes that I mentioned in yesterday's post, I am going to give you those recipes today.  In my opinion, nothing says Autumn like pumpkin!!

Mum Mum's Pumpkin Bread

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp nutmeg
1 cup vegetable oil (I use refined coconut oil)
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
2 cups canned pumpkin (1 15-oz can)
3 cups white sugar

Sift dry ingredients together.  Make a hole in dry ingredients and add other ingredients in the hole. 

Mix until smooth, scraping bowl to bring up unmixed batter from the bottom of mixing bowl. 

Pour batter into two or three greased, floured loaf pans.

Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.

Chill overnight before serving, for maximum flavor.

Freezes well.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups butter, oil or applesauce (or any combination of the three equaling 1 1/2 cups)
2 cups canned pumpkin (1 15-oz can)
2 cups semi-sweet morsels

Mix together dry ingredients and set aside.

Beat eggs and add sugar, pumpkin and oil (or applesauce).

Add dry ingredients.  Mix well, scraping the bowl as needed.

Stir in semi-sweet morsels.

Pour into 24 muffin cups, sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Since we're on the subject of pumpkin recipes, I thought I'd throw in my pumpkin pancake recipe as a bonus!  Here it is -- "free of charge!"  Enjoy!   :)

Good timing! Our Walmart was giving away pumpkins last night. We got two.

Thanks for the recipes! :)

I tried the pumpkin pancakes recipe in the latest taste of home magazine...they were delicious! I will have to try the muffins this week. I was thinking of making soup tomorrow, so now I have a few more ideas to choose from!

Amber's favorite is the pumpkin bread!

I just posted that same Pumpkin Muffin recipe on my blog this morning! We made them yesterday as they are such a perfect Fall favorite around here...
Do you ever make pumpkin seeds? We really like those when we have fresh pumpkins (we didn't this year, though, it's all come from a can).

I just put the pumpkin muffins in the oven. They smell wonderful! Can't wait for a taste!! Pumpkin and chocolate is a great combo!! This was a nice light batter. I used a cup of apple butter and 1/2 of coconut oil. I hope they come out good!

No, Gayle, I have not tried baking pumpking seeds, but my sister is encouraging me to give that a try!

Terri, I'm glad you tried the pumpkin muffins! I hope you like them as much as we do!

I'm still enjoying trying some new pumpkin recipes -- my latest endeavor was a pumpkin pound cake! I will post that recipe soon!
