Pumpkin Bread

I don’t know about you but when a recipe calls for a cup of pumpkin puree I think who are they fooling since it is impossible to measure out the correct amount of the slurry stuff.  I look at the can and it reads serving size ½ cup – contains 3.5 servings.  I fill my measuring cup and almost all of the can is gone.  So this time the light went on….hmmm what if I use my kitchen scale.  Bravo, shouts the crowd of four very happy mouths with squeals of make more now!  Since it was gone in less then 12 hours.

15 oz. can
425 grams
 1 ¾ cup // 122 grams
since I hate converting oz, cups, pounds etc and they always told in school the US was to going metric.  I opt for the easy conversion
1 cup = 244 grams

Pumpkin Bread
from  Bobby Flay with Stephanie Banyas and Sally Jackson
Bobby Flay's Bar Americain Cookbook

Makes 1 (9-inch) loaf

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, plus more for the pan
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 t sea salt

1/2 t baking powder
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 t ground allspice
1/4 t ground cloves
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Scant 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
2 large eggs
2/3 cup water

~ preheat the oven to 350°F

~ whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves in a small bowl
~ beat the butter, sugar, and oil on high speed in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl a few times, until light and fluffy, about 1 minute

~ remove from the pan and let cool completely


  1. I think my wife would die for this! :)

  2. I would have to say I kind of laughed when I saw this title. Not really sure Bobby Flay bakes. What happened to his grill?

  3. Oh this looks amazing, I LOVE Bobby Flay!! I bet this tastes amazing! Feel free to stop by my blog and check out the $50 Williams-Sonoma gift card giveaway going on right now! xoxo

  4. I love pumpkin. I have just about half a cupboard shelf full of pumpkin so I can start making myself pie during the course of the year. I may just have to put one aside for this bread and the 'one scant cup' of pumpkin. :)

  5. This pumpkin bread looks delicious! I love Bobbie! I still have some pumpkin left over from Thanksgiving, so I think I might give this a try. Thanks for the recipe! :D
