To make this wonderful bread you will need:
3 c sugar
1 c vegetable oil
3 1/3 c flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
2/3 c water
1 can pumpkin
To make it begin by beating together the sugar and oil in a large mixing bowl:
Add eggs one at a time and mix well
In another large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger
Add water and half of the flour mixture to the sugar mixture:
Add the other half of the flour mixture and mix well:
Beat in the pumpkin. If you want walnuts or pecans in your bread, go ahead and add them here:
Stir this well, one last time.
Divide your batter between the two pans:
Bake on the middle rack of a 350 degree oven for 50-60 minutes
You want a knife to come out clean when inserted into the center of the bread. Let cool completely, and you are done.
You can add a cream cheese frosting if you like or you can enjoy as is! This is great served warm with a little butter on each slice.
Until next time,
