Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing pans
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting pans
1 cup light-brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups grated pumpkin (use a small-holed grater)
3 large eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour two 5x9 inch loaf pans or two 8 inch loaf pans and set aside.

Combine flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, and spices in a large bowl. Add grated pumpkin and toss. Whisk the eggs, buttermilk, butter and vanilla in a medium bowl and stir into dry ingredients. 

Transfer to prepared pans and bake on middle shelf of oven until a wooden skewer inserted into center of bread tests clean, about 35 minutes. Cool in pans on a wire rack. Run a knife around edges to release bread from pans.

So, do you cook the pumpkin before you grate it? Or just grate the uncooked pumpkin?

Lars.. when I make pumpkin bread (my recipe makes 3 loaves).. I add in 1 cup of mini chocolate chips. You wouldn't think it.. but it adds so much flavor. :)

Beth, mmmm, mini chips!! that sounds good. well, better; as I said, I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin-y stuff, lol.

Nicole, we just grated the uncooked pumpkin and mixed it up with everything else.

I wondered if you'd like this since you have a dislike for banana bread. Looks good...I love banana bread, but not a fan of pumpkin bread.
