Crockpot craziness! So let’s just get into the whole Fall thing shall we? Normally when I was living in Massachusetts Fall was all around. It was getting colder I brought my cardigans out and the leaves-oh the leaves. I was driving past farm stands and getting apple cider donuts and cider. It’s amazing. In Texas it is still like a hundred degrees. I’m a Fall lover. I’m a Halloween maniac. Pumpkin bread gets me there. I found this amazing recipe on pinterest for crockpot pumpkin bread and I had to try it. I had my doubts-but it’s amazing. Anything in a crockpot peaks my interest!
1/2 cup oil-I used vegetable
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs beaten
1 15 ounce can of pumpkin-stock up on this when the coupons come out in the Fall and then make it whenever!
1 1/2 cup of sifted flour-yes you have to sift it
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
This puppy is from scratch!
1. Blend the oils and sugars in a bowl.
2. Stir in the beaten eggs and pumpkin. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix.
3. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.
4. Add two cups of water to the crockpot-prop loaf pan in crockpot as shown-IMPORTANT STEP- cover the top of the crockpot lid with paper towels. This helps keep the bread dry but moist. I just took a roll and wrapped the entire lid like a mummy.
This bread was amazing. It’s very dense but moist. Only serve small portions or you’ll get a bell ache-ask my husband. So perfect with some cool whip!!!!! The whole house smelled like pumpkin and Fall!!!!!
The crockpot does it again!
