Pumpkin Bread

From Natalie:

I really don’t bake often but the two breads that I make, banana bread, that was posted earlier, and this pumpkin bread, are favorites.  The pumpkin bread is great with a mug of hot soup, a cup of tea or a glass of milk.  This bread smells particularly nice while it bakes.  The aroma of all the spices gives the house a nice fall smell.


  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can pumpkin (15 ounces, plain pumpkin)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, if desired

Combine the dry ingredients.  Add the eggs, oil, water, pumpkin, and nuts.  Blend together and put into a large loaf pan, (or two small ones), that have been buttered and floured.

Bake at 325 degrees for about 1 hour, until a knife blade comes out clean.  Delicious warm!  Enjoy!
