Pumpkin is such a great base for all kinds of flavor, and adds a wonderful texture to quick breads. We really wanted to kick up this pumpkin bread a notch and added molasses and freshly grated ginger in addition to the usual pumpkin pie spices. —Foxes

In This Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Butter and flour a 9" x 5" loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ground ginger, and nutmeg.
In another bowl, whisk together the egg, pumpkin, brown sugar, butter, vegetable oil, molasses, and buttermilk until well combined.
Add the fresh ginger and vanilla extract to the wet ingredients and mix well.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined (do not overmix).
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
In a small bowl, mix the turbinado sugar with the remaining teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the batter.
Bake 40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let the bread cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
