These are the dry ingredients and the spices used for making the pumpkin bread. In one large bowl, mix:
1 1/2 cups all purpose white flour
1/2 tsp each of salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice
1 tsp each of baking soda and ground ginger
In another bowl:
beat 2 eggs
add 1 scant cup of sugar and 2 tbs brown sugar
add 1/4 cup water
add 1/2 cup Canola oil
Add 1 cup well mashed/pureed pumpkin to the ingredients in the "wet" bowl and blend well. Finally, add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the flour and blend well.
Other: 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts will do fine for pumpkin bread. Mix with the flour
I didn't have any nuts but I had left over dried and chopped cranberries that I used and it turned out very nice and moist..
I baked in a 350 F degree oven for 50 minutes and checked with a wooden stick for doneness.
This is a rich bread full of calories. My husband added margarine to his slice of bread and he enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed my slice too. Now we have to go out and work it off on the Back Forty.
