I'm not one for sharing recipes on my blog - I don't think I've shared one yet but hey, there's a first time for everything right???
This is one of my favorite recipes that gets saved and only made in the fall. It's always a hit with however I share a loaf with and my Grandma and Grandpa loved it when I would stop by gifting them each their "own" small loaf. They weren't much for sharing this bread. tee hee hee. Enjoy!
2 c. canned pumpkin
3 c. sugar
1 c. water
1 c. veg. oil
3 1/3 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 tsp ground cloves
Heat overn to 350. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, sugar, water, vegetable oil and eggs. Beat until well mixed.
Measure the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and baking powder, nutmeg and ground cloves into a seperate bowl. Then stir until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, beating until smooth.
Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans and dust them with flour. Evenly divide the batter between them. Bake for 60 - 70 mins or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 - 15 min. Then remove from pans by inverting them onto a rack and tapping the bottoms. Slice and serve plain, buttered or with cream cheese.
