Happy Fall Y’all

October 17, 2012

Is October not the best month? The weather is heavenly, and the days are still long. I have many recipes to share from recent weeks and wanted to start with this one for pumpkin bread. I have tested many recipes for pumpkin bread through the years, but my mom’s recipe always wins the taste test. This recipe produces consistently good cake…I mean bread.

from my mom

Mix Together:
1 cup oil
4 beaten eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can pumpkin

Mix well in a separate bowl:
3 cups flour
3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt

Add wet mixture to dry mixture- do not overmix…a few lumps are OK!
Add 1 cup finely chopped pecans or cranberries as an option.
Grease and flour two loaf pans. Pour batter into pans. Sprinkle with white sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
