Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread

My mother in law found this recipe many years ago.  It is my favorite pumpkin bread recipe and so easy to make.  I also add a cream cheese frosting with a few spices such as nutmeg, cloves and allspice. This really makes the recipe have just the right amount of sweetness.  

Cream together:  3 cups of sugar and 1 cup of oil

Then add to this:  4 beaten eggs, 1 lb can pumpkin

Mix together in a bowl and set aside.  In another bowl mix the following:

3 1/2 cups of flour
2 tsp soda
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves

Mix the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, alternating with 2/3 cup of water

Bake at 350 for an hour for loaf, or 30 to 35 minutes for muffins (oven times may vary)
Be sure to place a toothpick in to make sure it is ready!
