It is finally here....welcome back autumn....welcome back socks, slippers and heavenly sweaters. I have missed you. Welcome back cool cozy days, and chilly breezes. I thought that you would never return. But you are here and i am so glad! There is cider to sip and yummy pumpkin bread to snack on. I mentioned a while back that when i finally had to wear sweaters all day long because fall was here i would have a hallelujah party...anyone care to join in? I made the pumpkin bread instead of cake because it just seemed right. What are your favorite things about autumn?
Amish Pumpkin Bread
3 c. Sugar 1 c. Vegetable Oil 4 Eggs, beaten 1 lb. canned Pumpkin(1 1/3 cup) 3 1/2 c. Flour 2 t. Baking Soda 2 t. Salt 1/2 t. ground Cloves 1 t. each Cinnamon, Allspice, Nutmeg 2/3 c. Water
Mix sugar oil and eggs together. Add pumpkin. Then add dry ingredients, mix well. Now add water stirring just until mixed. Pour batter in two greased and sugared loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. (i find it takes a little longer, so check them at an hour and then add time appropriately)
