My favorite pumpkin bread

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the colors of the leaves and the smell of Friday night football. Chimineas burning pinon wood.. Pumpkins and gourds, costumes and the first time you slip soft mittens on your hands and wrap that perfect scarf in the best fashionable knot around your neck. The best part for me is the food! Banana nut bread, pumpkin muffins, soups and stews, comfort foods that are healthy and yummy! Here is my favorite pumpkin bread.

Pumpkin Bread
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar ( I use splenda )
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon all spice
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can pumpkin
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
or 1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg, beaten
powdered sugar

Preheat oven 375 degrees. Mix dry ingredients in bowl together. In another bowl, mix eggs, pumpkin, sour cream or yogurt, oil, vanilla and egg. Stir into flour mixture just until moist. At this point you can either make muffins or loaves. It is up to you. Spray the pan of your choice with cooking spray and spoon or pour into pans. For muffins bake 15 -20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. For bread bake for 45 minutes or until done. Sprinkle powdered sugar over top of bread.
