Holiday Notebook: Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Icing

This recipe is a Holiday staple for my family. Adapted from the 1960's children's book by Wende & Harry Devlin "Old Witch & the Polka Dot Ribbon". The recipe is originally named Old Witch's Magic Nut Cake.

Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two 5 X 7 loaf pans with butter.
You can also divide batter among 6-8 mini loaf pans and cut baking time in half.

3 eggs
1 -1 lb can pumpkin
3/4 cup vegetable oil (may sub canola oil)
1/2 cup water
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (may sub 1/2 of the flour with Whole Wheat)
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup golden raisins (optional)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Combine eggs, pumpkin, oil and water in a small mixing bowl. In a larger bowl, combine remaining ingredients.
Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined. Do not over mix. Divide batter into two well-greased 5 X 7 loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour, or until a skewer inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

4 oz. cream cheese
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla or lemon juice
1/2 box confectioners' sugar
chopped walnuts to sprinkle

Cream together ingredients for icing.
Frost tops and sides of loaves and sprinkle with more chopped walnuts if desired.

About Me

My photo
Cincinnati, OH, United States
A dedicated foodie, with a passion for the best food. Favorite food crushes include; Cheese, Wine, Breads, Seafood, anything made with eggs, ...there's actually no point in a list, there isn't much out there I don't have a crush on. Transplanted from the Northeast at age 18, a whole new frontier of food was opened up to me. I have fished for Salmon, hunted for mushrooms, cracked open fresh oysters from the sea and devoured them on the spot. Figs, pears, peaches, so many indigenous jewels! I dedicate this BLOG to the endless variety this region provides. My hope is to live here for a very long time & continue to discover and experience it's unique bounty! Alas, my life has now taken me to Cincinnati, OH where the food culture is like none I have ever experienced.
