This adult version of an old classic, Pumpkin Bread for Adults is not as sweet as its predessors. It contains subtle and tantalizing spices (cinnamon, coriander & cloves) more suited to the mature palate.
2 cups white sugar
1-1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 cup walnut oil
1 29-ounce can pumpkin puree
4-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1-1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1-1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cream sherry
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease three 8 x 4 inch loaf pans.
In a large bowl, beat together white sugar, brown sugar and oil. Stir in the pumpkin. Mix in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, coriander and salt. Stir dry ingredients into pumpkin mixture until smooth. Stir in cream sherry. Beat till thoroughly blended, 1 to 2 minutes. Fold in nuts.
Spoon batter into 3 greased 8 x 4 inch loaf pans, filling no more than three quarters full.
Bake in preheated oven until a tester inserted into center of a loaf comes out clean, about 65 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes in pans before turn out onto wire racks to cool completely. Can be kept at room temperature for 4 days or frozen.
Recipe makes three 8 x 4-inch loaves.
