Snacro 004: How to make pumpkin bread

Happy Thanksgiving! Today I’m going to the North Shore for a get-together at a beach house owned by my friend’s family. I went last year and it was such a great experience. Yesterday, I made pumpkin bread to bring with me although the title is a bit of false advertisement since I basically did the manual labor while my friend, Anthony, recited the recipe. I’ll just try and describe what I (vaguely) remember.


This was a faulty sifter containing 3 1/2 cups of flour. I had to use it four times so the flour wouldn’t clump. The muscles in my arm are still burning.


An addition of crushed nutmeg and cinnamon.


Eggs, a half-cup of brown sugar, and two cups of regular sugar.


The sifted flour and spices were added to the egg and sugar mixture. My arms were about to fall off at this point.


A 15-ounce can of Libby’s canned pumpkin was added and blended. The entire mixture was placed in a greased glass loaf pan and put into the oven. I don’t even know at what temperature or for how long it was left in there because I passed out on the couch after I mixed everything up. Anthony had to do it.



I’m happy to report that the bread came out super delicious and the only mishaps were a couple of cuts that are now tightly dressed in Hello Kitty band-aids. I hope you enjoyed the photos and have a great Thanksgiving day!
