Punkin' Bread Recipe

I've never had Pumpkin Bread. I wanted to make it last year but never got around to it. So I made some this afternoon. It's raining here on Peek-A-Boo Street so going to the cider mill was marked off the agenda. So I decided to make that Pumpkin Bread that I've always wanted to make and taste. I don't like Pumpkin pie but this bread was so good. I could really taste the nutmeg in it. I might cut back on the nutmeg just a pinch next time. I rarely type out recipes here on my blog because of sheer laziness. This recipe was so yummy, I just had to pass along the recipe for you. A lot of you probably already have it because it came from my Better Homes & Garden cook book. Which is my favorite cook book of all time. I've even took some pics for you to see.

3 cups sugar
1 cup cooking oil
4 eggs
3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
2/2 cup water
1 15-oz. can pumpkin
1. Spray not stick spray in two 9x5x3 in. loaf pans; set aside. In a very large bowl beat sugar and oil with an electric mixer on medium speed. Add eggs and beat well; set aside.
2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Alternately add flour mixture and water t sugar mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. Beat in pumpkin. Spoon batter into prepared pans.
3. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 65 minutes (I baked mine 70 minutes) or until the wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool pans on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pans. Cool completely on wire racks. Wrap and store overnight before slicing (I could not wait and sliced into the bread when it was still warm).
And there you have it folks. A great Pumpkin Bread recipe. I loved the bread. It was so good. My house smelled heavenly when the Pumpkin Bread was baking in the oven. I will definitely be making this again! And of course, it's a wonderful autumn recipe. Plus it makes two loafs. You could wrap it up and send it to a loved one close by. I think I'm going to try and freeze the other one. That would be a great idea. I could just bring it out the night before I have my next get together. I hope you all are enjoying the fall season.

  1. I have a recipe for pumpkin bread but mine calls for not only the ingredients you said but 1/2 teaspoon ginger,2 cups raisins and 1 cup walnuts or yes and 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar. I have to make all my kids and the two grandkids that are married one for Christmas every year. They all love it. Fall is finally here and I am enjoying the crisp morning and the warm afternoons. Have a blessed day. Madeline
