  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 tablespoons molasses

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Grease and flour a 9x5" loaf pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the white sugar, brown sugar and oil with a hand mixer until light and creamy. Add the pumpkin, egg, sour cream and molasses and combine fully.
