Pumpkin Bread

This is a must-have for Fall!

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (or 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Topping:
  • – Chocolate chips (optional, not pictured)
  • – 1/3-1/2 cup butter
  • – 2 tablespoons sugar
  • – 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 7×3 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water, vanilla and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Pour into the prepared pans and sprinkle chocolate chips on top if desired.
  3. Bake for about 60 minutes in the preheated oven. Loaves are done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Let cool for 2 minutes. Use a chopstick or something similar to poke holes in the top of the loaves. Melt the butter/cinnamon/sugar together and pour over the top, letting the topping seep into the bread.

    Enjoy!
