Gradually add the remaining dry ingredients, mixing until evenly incorporated.
Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan.
For Crockpot Cooking
Add 2 cups of water to your crockpot, and then sit the loaf pan inside the crockpot.
Cover the top of the crockpot with 8-10 paper towels. This is important as it traps the moisture and condensation so the bread doesn't become 'mushy'.
Place the lid on the crockpot, keeping the paper towels securely in place.
Bake on high 2 1/2-3 hours.
For The Oven-Baked Version
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Bake pumpkin bread 50-60 minutes in the oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
*To make your own easy brown sugar, add 1 tbsp molasses to 1 cup of sugar and mix together thoroughly. Just like store-bought brown sugar, extras can be stored in a ziplock bag and put in the pantry, cabinet, etc. for future recipes.
