Yummy Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread
Created by Linda Butler

This recipe for pumpkin bread came from my mother, Linda Butler, who came up with it. The bread is very moist and almost cake-like in texture. It has a wonderfully sweet flavor and is a staple in our household around October and November.

Here are the ingredients.

3 eggs
3 cups sugar
3 cups flour
1/2 teas. baking powder
1 teas. nutmeg
1 teas. baking soda
1 cup Crisco oil
1 large can pumpkin (not pie filling)
1/2 teas. salt
1 teas. mace
1 teas. cinnamon
2-3 teas. molasses


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix in large mixing bowl with electric mixer the eggs, sugar and oil. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix for 2 minutes. Spray 3 loaf pans with cooking spray. Cook in oven for 1 hour at 325 degrees. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before moving to kitchen towel or cooling rack.

Slice, eat and enjoy!
