    1½ cups all-purpose flour
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ¼ teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    ½ teaspoon cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
    1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
    ½ cup vegetable oil
    ⅓ cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Maple Cinnamon Butter
    Maple Cinnamon Butter
    4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
    1 tablespoon maple syrup
    ¼-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon salt

Directions: 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan; set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together; flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice and set aside.

  3. In a stand-alone mixer fitted with a whisk attachment cream together the oil and sugars, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.

  4. Next, add eggs one at a time and vanilla, scraping down sides of the bowl.

  5. Next, add pumpkin, maple syrup and water, again scraping down the sides of the bowl.

  6. Lastly, add the bowl of dry ingredients a little at a time until just mixed together.

  7. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely in the pan before turning the pan over to take it out.

  8. To make the maple cinnamon butter, whisk all of the ingredient in a bowl and serve with bread.


Notes
*I read that putting plastic wrap over the bread after it comes out of the oven helps the bread stay moist. I put plastic wrap over the bread after about 30 minutes of cooling (the bread was just warm) and let it sit overnight. The bread turned out incredibly moist.
