 Best Ever Pumpkin Bread (10) a copy

 I have won a few cook-offs with this bread – because it is really just that awesome! The first best thing about this bread is it is so easy to make… the batter will be done and in the oven in minutes! The second best part is that it is AMAZING! It is soft and moist and pumpkiny and the frosting is truly wonderful!

Best Ever Pumpkin Bread Recipe

3 cups Sugar
4 1/2 cups Flour
1 3/4 cups Oil
1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/2 teaspoon Salt
5 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 Large Can Pumpkin
6 Eggs

Mix all ingredients together. Lightly grease your pan and pour batter into a bundt pan. My bundt pan is little so I usually make a few extra mini loaves. You could also just do a few large loaves. Bake at 355 for 1 hour.

Frosted Topping

1 Package Cream Cheese
1-1 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar
3-4 Tablespoons Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon Cinnamon

With your hand mixer, cream your cream cheese, adding in powdered sugar as you go. I like mine a little sweeter so I add the full 1 1/2 cups! The amount of milk you add depends on the thickness you want your frosting to be. Then add in your vanilla and cinnamon – give it one last good mix and serve it over your pumpkin bread slices.

If your topping miraculously survives into the next day, keep it in the fridge. Just pour it over your bread and pop the whole thing in the microwave for a few seconds and it will be just like pulling it out of the oven.
