Golden Pumpkin Loaf

This recipe comes from a kids recipe book called “Betty Crocker’s Cookbook for Boys & Girls” from 1979.  I found it in our basement with a few other cookbooks and thought I’d include the recipes they have for pumpkin-y things.  Enjoy!

Yields 1 loaf


Pastry brush
Loaf pan, 9 x 5 x 3 inches
Large mixer bowl
Electric Mixer
Wire cooling rack


1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 can (16 ounces) pumpkin
3 cups biscuit baking mix
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Heat oven to 350*.  Generously grease loaf pain with shortening, using pastry brush.
  2. Beat 1 cup sugar, 1 egg and the pumpkin in mixer bowl on medium speed 30 seconds.  Gradually beat in remaining ingredients on low-speed just until smooth.  Pour into the greased pan.
  3. Bake at 350* 1 hour and 10 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Cool the pumpkin loaf 10 minutes on rack, then remove from pan.  Serve warm or cold.
