Add walnuts. Please. It’s worth it. I just ran out and was too lazy to get more.

Are you tired of bringing inferior dishes to family dinners? Well, this recipe is for you. Knock that green bean abomination out of the park for good with this groovy gourd-based bread. If you need to make sure you have everything, here are the ingredients and supplies you’ll need (don’t worry- everything will be listed in the recipe as well, so you won’t have to glance back up for measurements).

1½ cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
9×5 loaf pan
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together 1½ cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, ½ teaspoon of salt and baking soda, 1½ teaspoons of cinnamon then set aside. In a medium bowl, beat two eggs, then add 1 cup of sugar, ½ cup of vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Mix until combined. Add 1 cup of pumpkin puree to the wet ingredients (you can find this with canned food in stores, usually just labeled “pumpkin”) and mix. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients (if you’d like, add ½ cup of chopped walnuts as well) and mix until fully incorporated. Prepare a 9×5 loaf pan by thoroughly greasing the interior. Pour your batter into the pan, and bake for one hour. Check to see that the bread is done by poking a toothpick in the center; if it comes out with batter sticking to it, bake for five more minutes and repeat. When the toothpick comes out dry, let your bread cool. Finally, serve this delicious treat to your friends and family, and enjoy!
