Maple Hill Manor fills with aroma of fresh baked Pumpkin Bread.Slap on some butter to a warm slice and feel your eyes roll back in your head with the first bite.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups shredded fresh pumpkin
- 1 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Sift the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together.
In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla. Combine both mixtures and fold in the shredded pumpkin and pumpkin seeds. Once the ingredients are all incorporated pour into a non- stick 9 by 5 by 3-inch loaf pan. If your pan is not non- stick coat it with butter and flour. Or make muffins using muffin tins. As long as you can still rub some butter on them. lol
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. At this point a knife inserted into the middle of the loaf should come out clean. Cool for 15 minutes and turn out onto a cooling rack. Cool completely. For muffins temperature should also be 325 degrees F., but bake for 30 minutes.

We love the serene setting of the llama/alpaca farm – and its farm store featuring garments and gift items made from the Alpacas raised on this farm. We love the elegant rooms. We love the gourmet breakfast feasts (and 24-hour dessert bar). We especially have come to love our gracious hosts.
