This Tea Bread (some call them Quick Breads) is a very easy sweet bread to make up and bake. Most children love anything "pumpkin" and as we all know, pumpkin has a good amount of beta-carotene in it, just as carrots do.

I love this time of year. It got so very cold this weekend that I had to turn on my heat... reluctantly! I also turned on the oven and started baking. I thought about making something with pumpkin, but wanted something a bit different. I went looking through all my own recipes and found all my different pumpkin breads, cakes, and muffins. I started making my pumpkin bread recipe and came across a version that has ginger in it. I love ginger in anything, so here we go.

Do you have a recipe using shredded pumpkin in pumpkin bread?

By Ruth Smith from Margate, FL


October 6, 20090 found this helpful

Shredded pumpkin bread (or muffins)

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups shredded fresh pumpkin
1 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Sift the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together.

In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla. Combine both mixtures and fold in the shredded
pumpkin and pumpkin seeds. Once the ingredients are all incorporated pour into a non- stick 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf
pan. If your pan is not non- stick coat it with butter and flour.

Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. At this point a knife inserted into the middle of the loaf should come out clean.
Cool for 15 minutes and turn out onto a cooling rack. Cool completely.

For muffins temperature should also be 325 degrees F., but bake for 30 minutes.
