Pumpkin Bread

This is what home smells like to me. My mom used to make this and to this day it is one of my favorite breads! It’s perfectly delicious! My husband loves to toast it and eat it warm with butter. It’s the perfect addition to Waldorf Chicken Salad. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Pumpkin Bread


  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 can canned pumpkin
  • 2/3 cups water
  • 3 cups Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and cloves. Add oil, eggs, pumpkin and water. Mix thoroughly. Slowly add flour, salt and baking soda- stirring after each cup of flour. After everything is mixed together, pour batter into prepared bread pans. This will make 2 large loaves. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees or until toothpick comes out clean.
