Pumpkin Bread

Over the past 2 1/2 months I have made over 17 loaves of pumpkin bread. I made them for parties and to give away as gifts. I want to share my recipe with everyone so you too can enjoy this wonderful tasting bread. It is so easy to make so don't be afraid to just try something new and make a loaf.
Pumpkin Bread


Makes 3 loaves:

6 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking soda
3 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons pumpkin spice or 4 teaspoons
4 ½ cups sugar
1 ½ cups vegetable oil
6 eggs
1 large 29oz. can of pumpkin

**For sweeter more flavorful bread instead of 4 1/2 cups sugar put 5 cups sugar and instead of 4 teaspoons cinnamon add 5 or 6 teaspoons cinnamon.

Bread is best when made the night before you plan to eat it.
1. Place flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Mix

2. Then add the cinnamon or pumpkin spice, which ever you prefer

3. mix all dry ingredients

4. beat eggs

5. mix sugar, oil, and pumpkin to the eggs
6. add this mixture to the flour mixture and blend.

7. pour into a 9x5 loaf pan

8. bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a knife inserted into bread comes out clean. Let the bread cool for about 10 minutes and then turn upside to take out of pan. Wrap the bread in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. This causes the bread to become very moist.

For a wonderful treat cover the bread in cream cheese icing.

Pouring melted butter over the top and sprinkling with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar is very good also.
