(WSVN) - Fall days call for something sweet, and there’s nothing like warm home baked treats this time of year. That’s what on the menu as we grab a Bite with Belkys.


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter, slightly cooled
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk (or water)
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • raw sugar to sprinkle on top (optional)

Method of Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a pan generously with nonstick cooking spray or butter. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Set aside.  
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: eggs, pumpkin, brown sugar, white sugar, melted butter, oil, buttermilk (or water) and vanilla extract.   
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until just combined. Don’t over mix!
  • Pour the pumpkin batter into the loaf pan and sprinkle generously with the raw sugar. 
  • Place the pan in the over and bake for 45-60 minutes (oven temperatures vary, so keep an eye on it).
  • The pumpkin bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Remove from pan and let cool completely on a cooling rack. 

Slice, serve and enjoy!
