|Pumpkin Bread II|
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Butter and lightly flour 2 medium loaf pans (8 1/2 by 4 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches).
- Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine eggs, oil, pumpkin and sugar until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, soda, salt, allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg.
- With the machine on low speed, add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture in ¼-cup increments.
- Scrape down the side of the bowl and mix for another 30 seconds or so, until all ingredients are well-combined.
- Divide the mixture equally between the 2 loaf pans.
- Sprinkle the top of each loaf with 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds.
- Bake 40 to 45 minutes until a tester inserted into the center of each loaf comes out clean.
- Allow loaves to cool in the pans for 5 to 10 minutes before unmolding, then allow loaves to cool on a wire rack to room temperature before cutting or wrapping.
