FriendshipBread Time-Pumpkin

Here we are again, time to share an Amish Friendship Bread recipe. Since It is October I have created a Pumpkin one.
I was asked last time if I share the starter. I do not have many friends who cook. I have shared it with some. Now I am sharing the recipes. Today I will find a neighbor who will like the Starter and share a loaf of the bread with them.

Amish Pumpkin Nut Bread
1-3/4 cup Starter
1/2 cup Pumpkin
1/2 cup honey
2 eggs
4 Tablespoon Melted butter.
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Mix above ingredients together.

Sift together:

2 cups flour
2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie spice (I used McCormick)
1-1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt

Add to the wet ingredients. mix well
fold in 3/4 cup chopped Pecans*
*a tip: add about 2 Tablespoons of the sifted dry ingredients to the nuts; it will help the nuts to well distribute throughout the bread.

Put into two greased and sugared 4x8 bread pans. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes.

  1. Looks yummy. I love the concept of Friendship bread and the pumpkin makes it even friendlier ;)

  2. I don't like pumpkin can you use sweet potato?

  3. This looks real yummy. I especially like that there is no sugar in it but honey instead. I bet it gives it a rich flavor. I wish I was your neighbor!
