Pumpkin Bread

My dad didn’t do a lot of cooking when I was growing up, but he was known for his out-of-this-world pumpkin bread.  Every Christmas he would spend an entire day in the kitchen making loaves and loves of this delicious treat!  When I asked him if I could post his recipe he told me that he actually got the recipe from an old family friend.  So Sue, THANKS!!!

Here is what you will need:


  • 4 Eggs
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 can pumpkin (16 ounces)
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup water

20130628-161714.jpgMix well until all the ingredients are completely combined.

20130628-161727.jpgAdd the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and water.  Mix until well blended.

Bake on 350 degrees.  Small loves need 45 minutes, medium loaves 50 minutes and large loaves 1 hour.
