~Pumpkin Bread~

Just a Thought~ I am not a pumpkin fan! When I was given a can of pumpkin puree, I had no clue what to do with it. After the can sat for several weeks, I found a recipe for pumpkin bread, in an old recipe box, that I have. I thought why not? I tried it and fell in love with pumpkin bread. Since, I'm not big of the "spice" taste, I didn't use the nutmeg when I baked this.


 Pumpkin Bread

3 1/4 c all-purpose flour 2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp ground nutmeg 2 c solid pack pumpkin puree 1 c vegetable oil 1/2 c chopped pecans 1 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp ground cinnamon 3 c white sugar 2/3 c water 4 eggs

Grease and flour 2 9 x 3 inch pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Measure flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and spices into a large bowl. Stir to blend. Add pumpkin, water, oil, eggs, and nuts. Beat until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.  Bake for approximately 1 hour.

This bread could pass as cake. As you can see in the picture, I frosted the bread with Cream Cheese Frosting.
