Amanda and I made pumpkin bread the other day… Matt’s co-worker’s wife lost her father this week and he thought it would be nice to take her pumpkin bread because she always talks about how much she likes it when I make it for the holidays (for his co-workers). So we made extra. 🙂
Many times Amanda will mention she googles recipes including mylifeasannie so that she can find our favorite recipes on the blog. Pumpkin bread has not been put on the blog – crazy, huh? I have this recipe written in a recipe book I was given at my wedding shower 4 thousand years ago and it looks like it has been retrieved from the ocean. I had to hold it to the light to make sure I had the right amounts of ingredients. Because of these two things I decided to post it on the blog so that it isn’t forever lost.
1 cup oil (I used coconut oil)
1 pound pumpkin (I used 15 oz can)
4 eggs (beaten)
3 1/2 cups flour
1 t baking soda
2 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1 t allspice
1 t nutmeg
1/2 t ground cloves
2 t salt
Mix well. This recipe makes two large or three medium loaves… or 6 small loaves. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or until it passes the clean toothpick test.
p.s. Bailey you better hurry, it’s going fast!
