Simple Pumpkin Bread
I'm pretty sure my mom has at least one loaf of pumpkin bread in her freezer at any given time. This is her recipe and it has always been an autumnal staple around our house, to the point that I actually became sick of it for awhile. It's as simple as it is cheap, my mom is the least pretentious cook I've ever met, if it's more than five ingredients and takes longer than 30 minutes to make, I can guarantee she isn't interested. This recipe will make two loaves, and you're probably going to eat one of them by yourself (I bet) though for the sake of your figure, give one away.
You will need the following:
1 c pureed pumpkin
3 c flour
3 c sugar
1 c vegetable oil
2/3 c water
2 tsp pie spice
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350. Flour two loaf pans, or line muffin tin with baking cups.
Step 2: Mix everything together in a stock pot.
Step 3: Stir pot over low heat just until bubbly.
Step 4: Fill loaf pans half-way with batter and bake for 45 minutes. Test by sticking a toothpick into bread. If it comes back clean, bread is done.
Serve with salty butter or pumpkin butter
