Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bread

As many of you may know, I am not a baker. But, I love the smell of freshly baked goods. Pumpkinpalooza is here, and with the crisp Fall air and Halloween just a couple days away, I am filled with high holiday sprits and all I want to eat is pumpkin. Every year, I buy the Trader Joe's Pumpkin bread & muffin mix. 
It's super easy, inexpensive ($2.99), and a delicious fix! I always add dried cranberries and raw walnuts to spice up the mixture. Just follow the simple instructions on the box and you will have a great Fall treat! If you don't have a Trader Joe's and really want to try their products, email me and we can work out a foodie pen pal. 







ingredients

1 full package of Trader Joe's Pumpkin Bread & Muffin mix 
2 Large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil 
1 cup water 

optional 

1/2 cup chopped Trader Joe's dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped Trader Joe's raw walnuts 

preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease the loaf pan. They recommend using a standard 9x5 pan. 
To make the preparation even easier for me, I used two 
World Market's Patisserie loaf pans (6"W x 2"D x2.6"H). They are the best to use because you don't have to grease the pans and are great to gift to any hostess or bring a treat to work that everyone will love! Make sure to put the paper loaf pans on a baking sheet. 

Combine eggs, oil, water in the medium bowl. Add mix, and fold together with a rubber spatula until batter is smooth. Add in cranberries and walnuts to mixture.  Spread the batter in the loaf pan, filling the corners and leveling the top.  Bake the bread for about 55 to 60 minutes. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes.
