Pumpkin Bread

  • 1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 4 eggs
  • ⅔ cup water
  • 3 ½ cups flour
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 3 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 °. In a large bowl mix the pumpkin, oil, eggs, water, and sugar. Sift the rest of ingredients together and slowly add to the pumpkin mixture. You may mix this by hand or use an electric mixer. Mix well.

Pour into greased and floured 3 loaf pans, 8½ x 4½ inches, or 2 loaf pans, 9¼ x 5¼ inches. Bake at 350 ° for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 20 minutes before removing from pan.

Eat one now and freeze a few for later or make some friends or family happy with some pumpkin bread. This is a favorite of Kathy's.
I prefer the smaller loaves.


  1. This is a fall favorite for me. The aroma will pleasantly fill your house. Also it is so easy to make.

  2. We love all things pumpkin. Thanks for sharing at Church Supper! I'm saving this one. Nice to see new faces. Hope to see you next week.
