Cooking Thursday

Here's a great Fall recipe for you.  Since it's time for pumpkin, I thought I would make some pumpkin bread.  This is the best recipe for pumpkin bread, it's moist and so full of flavor, with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice.

Pumpkin Bread

1 1/2 cup sugar
1/3 vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin (not pie mix, just plain canned pumpkin)
1 3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup raisins, optional
Combine all ingredients.  Place in large, greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until it tests done.
*You can triple this recipe and use one of the large cans of pumpkin (29 ounces = 3 cups of pumpkin).  You will have 3 loaves of the bread and it freezes well.

I can't believe this! Brittany brought us each a tiny loaf of pumpkin bread a week or so ago, that she'd made from her grandmother's recipe. It was so moist and delicious that I asked for the recipe, which she sent me in a text containing a picture of the recipe written in her grandmother's own hand. I just looked at it again and with a few changes as to measurements, it's identical to your recipe. I have been in the habit for years of buying Pillsbury Quick Bread mixes (pumpkin and banana) which are exceptional on their own, but then I kick them up with real pumpkin and banana, and nuts and so forth. That makes a really good loaf of bread but this recipe of yours (and Brittany's grandma's) is a whole different animal. I'm making some of this for Thanksgiving! Thanks Mari! And thanks Brittany's grandma, haaahaha xoxo

Your recipes and the food always sound and look delicious. I always plan to make what you have posted...and haven't done one yet. My intentions are good though. One of these days! I did copy the recipe for the latte and told my daughter about it. :)

Yum! And I can almost smell the glorious scents coming from your Autumn spiced kitchen. I love the smell of cinnamon , nutmeg and cloves.
