recipe for posterity…pumpkin bread

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.


Pumpkin bread

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!
