I’ve tried many pumpkin breads and this one is my favorite so far. The pudding in the batter gives this bread the best texture!
PUMPKIN PUDDING BREAD
15 oz can pumpkin
6 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup cinnamon applesauce (I used regular applesauce and just added 1 tsp cinnamon to the batter)
1/2 cup oil
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 sm. box cook and serve vanilla pudding
1 sm. box cook and serve butterscotch pudding
1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
In a large bowl whisk together the pumpkin, eggs, applesauce and oil. In another large bowl, mix together all of the other ingredients. Stir the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture just until combined. Pour the mixture into greased loaf pans. You can either make two large loaves or five 5.75X3 inch pans. I actually made one large loaf and two smaller ones and it worked out great. Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes (larger pans) or 40-45 minutes (smaller pans), or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Place the pans on a wire rack for about 10 minutes before removing the loaves from pans. Cool completely on wire racks (or do as I did and enjoy a couple slices while warm!). Enjoy!
