Pumpkin Oats Soda Bread

Pumpkin Oats Soda Bread


1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tbsp ground cinnamon (less if you don't like cinnamon as much as we do)
2 packets instant oatmeal (single serving size)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in pumpkin, cinnamon and one packet oatmeal. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Mix in the baking soda and flour. Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with remaining packet of oatmeal (I would recommend making a struesel with the oatmeal, brown sugar and some butter).
3. Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean

NOTE:  this turned out nice and light and fluffy and was a HUGE hit with everyone.
