Classic Pumpkin Bread

This time of year, we have a steady supply of pumpkin bread in our home. My mom has used this recipe for forever and it’s my absolute favorite. One batch makes two loaves but you can easily half it if wanted. Or you can share that second loaf with a lucky person. Whether you enjoy a slice for breakfast or as a snack, just be sure to make yourself some while pumpkin flavored everything is in season!

Classic Pumpkin Bread

3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
2 cups canned pumpkin

Yield: 2 loaves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine sugar, oil, and eggs in bowl and mix together. Add all other ingredients and mix until combined but do not over mix.

Pour the batter into two 9x5x3 loaf pans. Bake for 60-80 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire racks until completely cool and wrap/cover to keep it fresh.
