Pumpkin Bread

Last week Danny and I had a huge cook fest.  We made breads, fudge, and scones.  One of the breads that we made were Homemade Pumpkin Breads.  I just use the Betty Crocker's Cookbook recipe, and it never fails to make a delicious loaves of bread.  Sometimes it's funny how we go back to basics, especially during the holidays.  

Danny and I made two loaves of the pumpkin bread.  He kept one out to eat and we froze one for Thanksgiving morning.  I like to make extra breads for Thanksgiving and Christmas morning.  That way I don't have to make more then the one holiday meal on those days.

Here is the recipe for

Pumpkin Bread


2/3 cup shortening
2 2/3 cup sugar
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
3 1/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg 1 16 oz can pumpkin


Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray 2 9x5 inch loaf pans with non stick cooking

Mix shortening and sugar in a large bowl. 

Next add eggs, pumpkin, and water.  Mix well

Then mix in flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.

Pour pumpkin bread mixture into loaf pans.

Put in oven and bake for 55 to 65 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Pull out of oven when done and cool on a rack for 15 minutes.

Then take out of pans and cool on racks.

Once cool wrap in plastic wrap and either eat or freeze.

Makes 2 loaves

    We made pumpkin bread this weekend. I went to put a piece in my Kindergartner's lunch box this morning and it was all gone! I asked his dad (he was helping his dad work on a project yesterday) if he knew little man ate what was left, and he said yeah, he was going at it while they working. Left me an empty container!! lol I guess he likes pumpkin bread. :)
