Delicious Quick Bread

The Duchess brought pumpkin bread for her visit to Parkway Manor this holiday weekend. Very delicious. Perhaps she will share the recipe with us!!!

Thanks for the recipe Duchess!

Here is the pumpkin bread recipe:

1 2/3 c. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1 1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. oil
1/3 c. buttermilk
1 c. canned pumpkin

Mix ingredients together. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour.

This is the original recipe that I found on It is perfectly good as is, but you can make adjustments, such as:

- substitute plain yogurt for buttermilk (no change in measurement)
- reduce sugar if you want it to be more like a bread and less like a cake
- mix all the dry ingredients together and the wet ingredients separately, then combine
- sift the flour

I did all of the above in the loaf you guys had. One other thing I've done in the past is melt a few squares of unsweetened dark chocolate and swirl that into the batter. Makes for a subtle chocolate flavor and a cool look.

Also, the original recipe doesn't specify what kind of oil. I use canola.
