4.) Cut up your pumpkin and shred three cups.

Let’s be honest. I used to do this part prior to meeting my husband. However, now that I have him… I make him do it. Those small baking pumpkins can be tough! I’m not even ashamed to admit that!

6.) Once it has all been mixed up pour it into a non-stick 9×5, 3″ loaf pan.

Note: If you don’t have a non-stick pan just coat it with butter and flour.

7.) Bake for one hour and 15 minutes. However, always insert a knife and check just to make sure!

8.) Let it cool for 15 mins and then turn it over onto a cooling rack (or plate if you don’t have one).
