Pumpkin bread with walnuts recipe with Cook with Jess
Nothing says Autumn better than pumpkins. Not only as Halloween decoration but also to eat; pumpkins can be enjoyed both ways.
Therefore, I took the opportunity to share with you the tastiest Pumpkin Bread with Walnuts recipe at the very beginning of October. One bite and you will directly feel the coldish autumn breeze, hear the sound of the rain drizzling and imagine the dry leaves falling down from trees and covering parks and streets with a carpet of cozy colors.
- 500g of pumpkin cubes
- Q.S. water
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1.5 tsp cinnamon powder
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup corn oil
- A handful walnuts
First of all, in a large saucepan over high heat, display the pumpkin cubes and cover them abundantly with water. Let them boil until they become soft. This will take about 15 to 20 min maximum. Turn off the heat and drain them well.
Transfer them to a blender and smash them until they become a pumpkin creamy purée. Set aside to cool.
Then, proceed by preheating your oven at 180°C.
With a hand or stand-mixer, whisk the eggs with the salt, the vanilla and the baking powder.
Afterwards, add the oil, the flour and the sugar one cup at a time while always mixing.
Spice up your cake by adding the cinnamon.
Add the pumpkin purée to the cake mixture and let the mixer do its work.
Finally, crush the walnuts into small to medium pieces and pour them down into the overall mixture. Blend everything together using a rubber spatula to avoid crushing the walnuts further.
Transfer the cake mix to a previously buttered and floured plum-cake mold and bake at 180°C for approximately 50 minutes or until a knife or a toothpick comes out clean.
N.B. Cooking times may vary depending on the size and the color of the cake mold you are using.
Once baked, leave the pumpkin bread to cool down at room temperature for at least an hour before unmolding it.
- The Pumpkin Bread with Walnuts becomes even tastier when served with a spread of cream cheese or accompanied with tea.
