I love the holidays and pumpkin bread is just one of those treats I enjoy having around Thanksgiving.This recipe is called Pumpkin Nut Loaf Cake only because it is has a consistency almost like a cake.  It smells wonderful and tastes even better!

Pumpkin Nut Loaf Cake

2 large eggs
2 cups sifted cake flour
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 can (15oz) unsweetened pumpkin
1 cup dark brown sugar
½ cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp butter, melted
½ cup chopped walnuts

Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the oven to 400. Lightly coat a 9×5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

To make the batter stir the flour, pie spice, baking powder , salt and baking soda together in a large bowl. Whisk together the eggs, pumpkin, brown sugar, cream and melted butter in a large glass measure. Pour into the flour mixture and mix until just moistened.

Removed the foil and continue to bake for another 20-25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. I cooked it a bit longer than 25 minutes! Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then invert onto a rack to cool completely.

It looks delicious! I have a pumpkin bread recipe at my blog too. (I make it into muffins.) It’s nice to see another variation. Yours sounds so good, with the addition of the cream. I found you via the Friday Features linkup at Oh My Heartsie Girl. Glad to meet you!

We love quick bread at our house and make banana bread often. This might be our new go to quick bread. I love the nuts on top and who doesn’t love pumpkin !!!! Thanks for sharing.

Oh, my! This looks SO yummy! I absolutely LOVE pumpkin…I wonder how it would work out if I tried substituting honey for the brown sugar? Hmmmm…I may have to try this!! Thank you for all of your wonderful posts in my inbox. You are a blessing!

Please let me know how using honey works out! I would certainly think it would work!

That looks like a really delicious loaf. I would spread it with butter and eat it warm. Probably one slice would not be enough . . .

I have to admit one slice is not enough, 🙂 and try it with a little soft cream cheese, delicious!
