Happy Sunday, Liberty Lovers!
‘Tis the season for pumpkin everything! I think I’m finally starting to build my liberty baking skills.
In this video, I will show you how to make John Quincy Adams’ (not to be confused with John Adams) pumpkin bread recipe while we expand our minds with fun facts about him!
John Quincy Adams’ Pumpkin Bread Recipe from “Famous White House Recipes, Volume 1, American Collection Cookbooks”
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 tsps baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp nutmeg
½ tsp ginger
3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
¾ cup water
2 cups cooked pumpkin, mashed
Note: I halved the recipe in this video.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, sift together flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and sugar. Add remaining ingredients and beat well until well blended. Transfer batter into 2 well-oiled 5 x 9 – inch loaf pans. Bake 1 hour.
You should definitely try this pumpkin bread recipe. It’s absolutely delicious!
In the words of John Quincy Adams, “Try and fail, but don’t fail to try.”
