Recipe by By the seat of Her pants
This is sweet, moist and easy to make! The original recipe called for cinnamon & nutmeg...items I have on hand BUT I accidentally bought canned pumpkin pie mix instead of plain ole canned pumpkin. So I omitted the spices, cut back on the sugar and went with the pie mix...IT IS DELICIOUS-and fool proof! I used 6 aluminum mini loaf pans so that I could gift the bread. But the original recipe calls for 2 loaf pans. You choose! Serving sizes, yield and cooking times vary depending on what type and number of loaf pans used.
- 2 1⁄2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup cooking oil (I use safflower oil)
- 4 eggs
- 3 1⁄3 cups all-purpose flour (I use white whole wheat)
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 2⁄3 cup water
- 15 ounces canned pumpkin pie mix (I used half of a 30 oz can)
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease the bottom and sides of your loaf pans. I used spray oil. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl beat sugar and oil. I use a whisk always, but you can use an electric mixer. Add eggs and beat well. Set sugar mixture aside.
- In another large bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt.
- Alternately add flour mixture and water to the sugar mixture. Beat after each addition until just combined. Beat in pumpkin. Spoon batter into prepared pans.
- In the 6 mini loaf pans I baked for 35 minutes and then checked and baked for another 4 minutes. In 2 loaf pans I would bake for 50 minutes and then check. It depends on your oven. When done, cool in the pans on a wire rack.
- Enjoy plain or with butter! This is a sweet bread!
