To make pumpkin bread at home with Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin, add the canned pumpkin to ingredients such as flour, eggs, salt, baking powder and baking soda to make a bread batter. An assortment of Libby's pumpkin bread recipes are available on VeryBestBaking.com.
Make the Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Nut Loaf Bread by mixing 2 cups of all-purpose flour with 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Combine a 15-ounce can of Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin with 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of evaporated milk. Whisk in 1 egg, 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, then gently fold in the flour mixture.
Pour the batter into a greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan, and scatter 1/4 cup of chopped nuts on top. Bake the batter for approximately one hour or until the insertion of a toothpick in the center emerges clean. Allow the bread to cool before cutting and serving.
Another Pumpkin-Chocolate Quick Bread recipe located elsewhere on the Very Best Baking website is also worth considering. This pumpkin bread features a chocolate center, thanks to the addition of melted semisweet chocolate to a portion of the pumpkin bread batter. It is also possible to omit the chocolate entirely to make a plain pumpkin bread with the recipe.
