Flavors of the Season

Pumpkin seems to be the flavor du jour, if you will, in our house right now. This time of year when the weather cools down and changes...gets a little dark and damp... i want to bake. Something. Anything. This day it was Amish Pumpkin Bread. This was a recipe given to me as part of a wedding gift. Yet, it was not until about a year or two ago that i re-discovered it and how amazing it really is.
I love the part where i add the spices...all the different colors together looks so pretty to me.
This is a very moist and tasty...spicy bread. I think everyone should give this a try!!!
Amish Pumpkin Bread

3 C. Sugar
1 c. Veg Oil
4 Eggs, beaten
1 can Pumpkin, 15 oz.
3 1/2 c. Flour
2 t. Baking Soda
2 t. Salt(scant)
1/2 t. ground Cloves
1 t. each, Cinnamon, Allspice and Nutmeg
2/3 c. Water

Mix sugar, oil and eggs together. Add pumpkin. Then add dry ingredients, then water. Stirring just until mixed. Pour batter into 2 greased and sugared(that is the secret) loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour...be sure to test in the end it might need a little more time.

oh yum! my neighbor just gave me some pump. muffins w/ dark choco chips in them. I only got one b/c Joshua ate the rest. For some reason, he liked those better than my black bean brownies. Hmmm. I'll have to get a few cans o pumpkin & try your recipe (I might add some choco chips tho :)

Oh, that looks yummy! I've caught the pumpkin bug too, but I've been making pumpkin pudding (just like a pumpkin pie, but no crust). :-)

I'm excited to try the "greased and sugared" pan trick - I've never seen that before!

I think this is the first recipe I try for breads :) It looks so yummy and sounds pretty easy. But question: what size can of pumpkin do I get? Or is there only one size??

Can't wait to taste this :)
