  1. Super moist Pumpkin bread: (from keyingredient.com)

      This recipe makes the most moist pumpkin bread that I have personally tried.
    Produce
    • 1 (15-ounce) canPumpkin
    Refrigerated
    • 4¬†Eggs, whole
    Baking & Spices
    • 1/2 tbsp¬†Baking powder
    • 2 tsp¬†Baking soda
    • 1 tsp¬†Cinnamon
    • 1 tsp¬†Cloves, ground
    • 3 1/3 cups¬†Flour
    • 1 tsp¬†Nutmeg
    • 1 1/2 tsp¬†Salt
    • 3 cups¬†Sugar
    Oils & Vinegars
    • 1 cup¬†Oil
    Liquids
    • 1 cup¬†Water
    Other
    • 3 strips¬†Aluminum foil

    Directions:¬†Preheat oven to 350¬įF. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix the wet ingredients (eggs, pumpkin, oil and water) in a separate bowl and add to the dry ingredients all at once. Mix well with a mixer till smooth and the delicious smell makes you start drooling slightly. Grease 3 loaf pans (9√ó4) and pour equal amounts of the yummy batter into each pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour. You‚Äôll know it‚Äôs ready when the top will start cracking and when you put a toothpick/knife in, it comes out clean. Set out to cool for about 5 minutes. Here‚Äôs the trick on keeping it SUPER moist. After letting it cool for about 5 minutes, take out a roll of aluminum foil. Pull out a large piece and then turn over the pan to drop one of the loaves right smack in the middle. Quickly fold the foil over (taking care not to burn the crap out of your fingers) and secure very tightly. Then set aside and let it cool off while being wrapped in the foil. Repeat and do the same to the other 2 loaves.

  2. Classic Pumpkin pie: (from livewellbakeoften.com) 

    Ingredients

    Pie Crust:

    Pumpkin Pie Filling:

    • 1¬†cup¬†light brown sugar
    • 1¬†tablespoon¬†all-purpose flour
    • 1/2¬†teaspoon¬†salt
    • 1¬†teaspoon¬†ground cinnamon
    • 1¬†teaspoon¬†ground ginger
    • 1/2¬†teaspoon¬†ground nutmeg
    • 1/8¬†teaspoon¬†ground cloves
    • 3¬†large eggs¬†lightly beaten
    • 1¬†15-ounce can pumpkin puree
    • 1¬†and 1/4 cups evaporated milk

     

    Instructions-

    To prepare the pie crust:

    1. Preheat oven to 400¬įF.
    2. Prepare the pie crust by rolling the dough out to 12-inches in diameter. Next, carefully transfer the dough to a 9-inch pie plate (make sure it’s at least 1 and 1/2 inches deep), gently fit it into the pie plate, trim any excess dough, and flute the edges. Line the pie dough with parchment paper or foil, making sure to cover the bottom and fit it snuggly in the corners and up the sides, then fill with pie weights (dried beans or dry rice work well too).
    3. Bake the pie crust at 400¬įF for 12-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and remove the parchment paper (or foil) and pie weights. Return the pie crust to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

    To prepare the filling:

    1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves until well combined. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin puree and evaporated milk until well combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together until fully combined.

    To make the pumpkin pie:

    1. Pour the pumpkin pie filling into the partially baked pie crust. Return to the oven and bake at 400¬įF for 45-50 minutes, or until the center is almost set (it should be a little wobbly). Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack for 2-3 hours to cool completely. Cover tightly and refrigerate for several hours or overnight
