• 2 cups all-purpose flour • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1 teaspoon baking soda • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder • 1 teaspoon ground cloves • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg • 1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened • 2 cups sugar • 2 large eggs • 1 (15-ounce) can 100% pure pumpkin


Step 1

To begin, place the oven rack in the middle position and preheat to 325 degrees F.

Step 2

Grease two 8x4-inch loaf pans with butter, then dust with flour.

Step 3

In a medium bowl, add the salt, flour, baking soda, cloves, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk until well combined, then set aside.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, beat the sugar and butter on medium speed with an electric mixer, until just blended.

Step 5

One at a time, add in the eggs, beating well after each addition. Continue to beat for a few minutes, until fluffy and light. Then, beat in the pumpkin.

Step 6

Add in the flour mixture, mixing at low speed until fully combined.

Step 7

Pour the batter into the prepared pans, dividing it evenly, then bake for 65-75 minutes, or until the cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 8

Allow the loaves to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then turn them out onto a wire rack to fully cool.
