Pumpkin Bread with Ginger Icing
- 1 cup Dixie Crystals Confectioners Powdered Sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated, or 1 teaspoon ground ginger
*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare a 9 x 5-inch bread loaf pan by coating sides with softened butter and a dusting of flour. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk to combine flour, baking powder and salt.
- In another large bowl, stir to combine pumpkin puree, eggs, sugars, melted butter, vanilla extract and nutmeg. Add pumpkin mixture to flour and fold in until just combined. Evenly pour into prepared pan. Bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Carefully remove from pan and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
- Icing: In a bowl, combine powdered sugar, milk, and ginger; whisk until smooth. Once bread has cooled completely pour icing evenly over pumpkin bread. Slice and serve.
