Pumpkin Bread for Adults

Walnut oil in Pumpkin Bread for Adults

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 eggs
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.
