This post brought to you by LIBBY’S Pumpkin. All opinions are 100% mine.

We are right back in the swing of activities now that summer is here.  Swim team, swim lessons and tennis lessons are daily for each of my 3 kids for the next 6 weeks.  We are on the GO and not always able to cook a full breakfast before rushing out the door.  Since we’ve been enjoying the whole pumpkin theme for ingredients lately, I thought we’d try a breakfast bread that can easily be brought on the go, with and without the glaze. So here is our latest- Glazed Pumpkin Bread Recipe that’s easy to do and everyone loves it!

 

Glazed Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Ingredients

1 15 oz. can of LIBBY’s 100% pure pumpkin

1 C. oil (you could also substitute applesauce if you’d prefer)

2 C. sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

3 eggs

3 C. flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. cinnamon

Glaze Ingredients -

2 C. powdered sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

2 tbs. butter, softened (I prefer using real butter, not margarine)

2-3 tbs. milk (this depends on how thin or thick you want your glaze. The more milk you add, the thinner the glaze will be and vice-versa).

Directions -

 

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and grease and flour 2 loaf pans.

 

#1. Combine all the wet ingredients – Libby’s pumpkin, oil, sugar, vanilla and eggs. Mix well.

 

#2. Slowly fold in the dry ingredients – flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix well.

 

#3. Pour the pumpkin batter evenly into the two greased loaf pans.

 

#4. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Bread will turn a light golden brown color.

 

#5. Remove the loaves from the oven and let cool completely. While they are cooling mix up the ingredients for the glaze.

 

#6. Once the loaves are completely cooled pour the glaze over them. **The glaze will melt if the loaves are too hot.

Why pumpkin?  It’s easy. Pumpkin is a superfood. Pumpkin adds extra fiber and Vitamin A to recipes. It’s packed with Beta Carotene. It can be used to replace the fat in some recipes and cut the amount of sodium per serving in others. When used as a replacement for butter, eggs or oil it can also reduce calories. It can be incorporated in breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and beverages – all that taste great.  You can feature the pumpkin flavor and create your recipes around pumpkin, or you can “tuck” it into other recipes to get the added benefits of pumpkin and not have the dish be all about the pumpkin.
