Pumpkin Bread

Autumn is not my favorite season. Summer ends, school begins, temperatures drop and illnesses circulate. However, I love the foods that come along with cooler weather. Soups, chili and chowders, caramel apples, apple crisp and pie, and pumpkin dishes. Here is the recipe for one of my favorite...pumpkin bread!


1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 cup pumpkin
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 2/3 cups flour
Optional- chocolate chips, nuts, raisins.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar and eggs. Add oil, pumpkin and water. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into a greased 4 1/2" x 9" bread pan. Bake approximately 45-55 minutes. Bread is done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on rack before slicing.

Finished Product

Perfect Texture
