directions

  • In a large skillet, add butter over medium heat and stir frequently until bubbling and slowly carmelizes and browned. Butter is browned when it smells nutty and carmelized and has a dark brown color (about 5-10 mins). Be careful not to let it burn so watch carefully! Remove from heat.

  • In a large bowl, mix wet ingredients together including pumpkin purée, bourbon, eggs, vanilla extract, oil, and brown butter.

  • In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients together including flour, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg. Then add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix for a few mins until you get a thick batter. Add chopped walnuts and mix to combine.

  • Preheat oven to 350F and add batter to greased loaf pan and bake for 55-65 mins until toothpick to the center comes out clean.
