My 8 year old son has really taken an interest in cooking so more and more he helps my husband and I cook or bake. My husband asked the kids if they wanted to help him make pumpkin bread and they all said yes. At one point our 4 older children were all in the kitchen helping him.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 cup canned pumpkin (we used fresh pureed pumpkin)
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cups of shortening (or substitute)
- In a large bowl combine 1 cup of flour, the brown sugar, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and nutmeg. Add pumpkin, milk, eggs and shortening.. Beat with an electric mixer on low until blended then blend for 2 minutes. Next add the remaining flour blend well. Pour batter into a greased pan (9 X 5 X 3 inch loaf pan). Bake on 350 for 60 to 65 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack.
With his new interest in cooking/baking I will sharing more of our kitchen experiences with you!
