I have been baking this bread for over 20 years. I'm not sure where I got the recipe from but its a KEEPER! It is very moist and makes the house smell like AUTUMN. This recipe makes 2 loaves.

  2. In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients thoroughly.
  3. In a seperate bowl beat together the pumpkin, oil, eggs and water.Add to the dry ingredients and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. DO NOT OVER MIX.
  4. Pour one half of the batter into each loaf pan.
  5. Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Place on a rack and after 10 minutes remove from pan and let cool.

Very moist and tasty! Loved the amount of spices-just right! I only made one loaf and cut the sugar to 1 cup, but I think 3/4 cup would be plenty for us. Thanks for this keeper.

Yum, yum, yum!!! This pumpkin bread is outstanding! It has a lovely moist inside with a crunchy crust and the taste is sooooooooo nice! The spices all go very well together and make for a very enjoyable autumn bread. I was instantly brought into a holiday mood. :) The only thing I changed was to make half the recipe and use only 1/2 cup of sugar for it. That way the bread was still very sweet, but not overly so. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this superb recipe with us, SCCG! I will surely make this again for my family this season as I think Ive found my favourite pumpkin bread recipe for now.
