Day 849's recipe

So how was your weekend? I feel like I spent all of Saturday in the kitchen -- it was delightful! Pancakes for breakfast, then a loaf of pumpkin bread, and honey corn bread muffins to have with chicken corn chowder for supper.

I'm not sure how many slices of pumpkin bread I've had since Saturday. Let's just call it several. It is my mom's recipe and I think it is the best. It's fluffy, but also nice and heavy, without any nuts or strange things to get in the way.

Mom's Pumpkin Bread
2 eggs
1/2 can pumpkin
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt (I use about 1/2 teaspoon)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

Mix until just blended, and pour into a floured loaf pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 and half hours.

One of my favorite things about fall is all the scrumptious baking! Your Mom's pumpkin bread sounds delicious...and I love your line, "without any nuts or strange things to get in the way." I totally agree. Trina

Colette, the plate is from TJ Maxx. I have some brown ones that I bought at least five years ago, and I stopped in the other day and they had them in black -- I had to snatch them up!

I find pumpkin bread so difficult not to devour. :-D

Sarah said...

I made this yesterday and just have one question. How did you end up with so many crumbs on your plate? I practically licked mine clean! And at the rate we're going through it, I'm going to be baking another loaf or two by this afternoon!

Julie said...

Yummy. I'm going to try this pumpkin bread recipe today!
