When lived in Pittsburgh, my girl's nursery school made this and sent home samples and the recipe. It is so easy and good. Kids love to help make it.
- 1 3⁄4 cups flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄2 cup oil
- 1⁄3 cup water
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup pumpkin (canned version is best)
- Sift together all the dry ingredients into a bowl.
- Mix together all the wet ingredients (oil, water, eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin).
- Stir wet ingredients into the flour.
- Bake in greased loaf pan for 1 hour at 350.
I changed a couple of things - I used 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon and nutmeg. I also used a 8x8 cake pan, and I used the dry mixture to coat the greased pan. The cooking time was the same, and it's delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!
My family just discovered pumpkin bread and this version is wonderful and easy to make!
Just discovered this recipe and the second batch is all ready in the oven. I did tweak it a bit for the second go-round. I added 1/2 tsp. allspice and a bit more cinnamon. Additionally, I added 2/3 c. of walnut pieces and 2/3 c. of golden raisins that I soaked in Capt. Morgan's dark spiced rum. The first batch was great but I'm putting my money on the second batch as I tend to like things spiced up.
