Maple Pumpkin Bread

Developed by Karen Fortin of Carman Brook Farm

  • 1-1/2 cups Grade B Maple Syrup
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 3 cups mashed pumpkin (I often use squash)
  • 4-1/2 cups flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1-1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1-1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
Beat syrup, sugar, eggs, and oil together; add pumpkin. Add dry ingredients. Bake at 300º for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Test with cake tester. Makes 3 standard loaves or 5 to 6 small loaves. This bread freezes excellently.
