A Snowstorm and Some Pumpkin Bread

Wow how I have missed my blog! We have been offline since Saturday when the northeast snowstorm began. We lost power early Sunday morning and thankfully had a generator to get us through the 20 hours till our power was back on. Still hard to believe that we had snow in October. I have lived in southern NY state my whole life and never have we had snow so early! Not fun. The poor trees hadn't even lost their fall leaves yet. But most importantly we made it through with only minor damage to our property due to some fallen trees.

On Sunday via generator power I baked. I wanted to share this amazing recipe for pumpkin bread that I got from my mom who found out about it from weight watchers. So EASY!! I have never taken food photos so this was the best I could get to share for this post.

There are only 2 ingredients . . . any brand of spice cake mix (18 oz) and one 15 oz can of pure pumpkin. Mix them together (it will be gooey and sticky) and spread into a 9x5 loaf pan. Bake according to the directions on the mix which for me was at 350 degrees for approximately 60 minutes or until the a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Oh my gosh it is so good!! And I am not even a big pumpkin fan. My husband is and I was baking it for him. It is super moist too! I still cannot figure out how it works by eliminating the eggs, oil and water the mix calls for but who cares when the results are WOW! lol

Hope you give it a try! If you have any good fall baking recipes to share I would love to hear them!

  5. This looks so yummy. OMG, only two ingredients! How easy is that?

    I remember living in Rochester NY when I was 12 (1967) and it snowed in September and broke branches on our neighbors cherry tree and our trees with leaves still there looked like pine trees.

    Back to the topic, I love how you put this pumpkin bread "on point"!
