I feel like pumpkin bread is quite a stereotypical recipe for a blogger to share at Thanksgiving. But if it is, that’s fine with me – I tend to get incredibly homesick around Thanksgiving and this is a chance for me to whip up something traditional – something which reminds me of home.
This is a fairly basic pumpkin bread recipe, which just had a few tweaks to incorporate some American-style apple cider I had – just to make this double-y Thanksgiving esque! Hope everyone in America is looking forward to the holiday – and I’m trying not to envy you your long weekend off.
Apple Cider Pumpkin Bread (adapted from Food Network)
3 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1 can of pumpkin puree
2/3 cup apple cider
2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Mix in the apple cider, than sift in the dry ingredients.
This is a lot of batter – you could make two large breads or probably about four small ones. Put batter in a lined loaf tin – make sure it has lots of room to expand!
