How To Make Pumpkin Spice Bread:
Step One: Set your oven to 350 degree. Allow the over to come up to temperature.
Step Two: Add 6 beaten eggs and 8 TBSP of melted (cooled) butter to a mixing bowl. Mix the eggs and cooled butter together until well combined and smooth and creamy.
Note: Allow butter to cool before adding it to the eggs so it does not cook the eggs.
Step Three: In the mixing bowl, add the erythritol to the egg and butter mixture and beat until well combined.
Step Four: Add pumpkin puree, sour cream, heavy whipping cream, and vanilla extract to the mixing bowl and mix all the ingredients until well combined.
Step Five: Mix together in a separate mixing bowl, the almond flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon. Mix the dry ingredients until they are well combined.
Step Six: Combine the dry and wet ingredients in one bowl and mix them together until the batter is smooth.
Step Seven: In a well-greased bread pan, add the bread batter mixture and bake for 1 hour or until the bread is cooked through.
Note: Insert a knife or toothpick in the center of the bread and it should come out clean when the bread is done. The top will be slightly brown when finished.
Can I Use Fresh Pumpkin Instead of Canned Pumpkin in this bread?
If you love cooked pumpkin, you can certainly substitute fresh cooked pumpkin for canned pumpkin. Cook your pumpkin though and mash it with a fork and use the same exact amount.
Can I Freeze This Pumpkin Spice Bread?
Yes, this bread can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week or frozen for up to one month. Package it as a whole loaf or individually sliced pieces. I love pulling individual slices out of the freezer at night to enjoy in the morning with coffee.
What Variations Can I Make To this Pumpkin Spice Bread?
Personally, I think this bread is perfect as is and, as they say, “don’t fix what ain’t broken”. But, you could also add nuts or chocolate chips to this recipe if you’d like.
