Cooking by the Numbers…

Step 1 – Prep the Pan

Grease a 9 x 5” loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray or butter. Set aside.

Step 2 – Whisk the Dry Ingredients

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, spice mix, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Step 3 – Mix the Wet Ingredients

In a separate large bowl, mix together the pumpkin puree, granulated sugar, brown sugar, evaporated milk, eggs, and vegetable or canola oil.

Be sure to use plain and pure puree, not the pumpkin pie puree, which would add excessive amounts of sugar and spices in this recipe.

Step 4 – Combine
