Pumpkin Bread with Spiced Buttercream

This pumpkin bread is moist and delicious- and it only gets better the next day, if it lasts that long! Frost it with spiced buttercream, and you know it's Fall. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Bread

1 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Mix the pumpkin, oil and eggs. Add the sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Mix well. Bake at 350 until a knife comes out clean; about 45 minutes for bread and about 20 minutes for muffins.

Spiced Buttercream 

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 teaspoons milk
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Frost once bread/muffins are room temperature.
