I hate deciding that I want to bake something, then googling a recipe and having no idea if it is any good or not. I'm here to tell you that this pumpkin bread is freakin' good. Slap yo' mama good.
So- this weekend, go to the pumpkin patch. Get a pumpkin and carve it up, then use those guts for something scrumptious! Or just do what I do and pick up a can of pumpkin at the store (I totally go for easy!)
Here you go!
Daisy's Scrumptious Pumpkin Bread:
3 1/2 cups all-pupose flour
3 cups sugar
2 tsp soda
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup oil
2 cups pumpkin
3/4 cup water
1 cup raisins (optional)
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Sift dry ingredients into bowl. Add oil, eggs, pumpkin and water, mixing well. Stir in raisins and pecans if desired. Spoon into two greased and floured 5x9 inch loaf pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 65 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool. Yields 2 loaves (24 slices)
