  This recipe has been in the family around 35 years or so  while it is pumpkin bread it doesn`t have a huge pumpkin taste for those that may not like pumpkin infact most people that said they hated pumpkin etc  said it was great and asked how to make it .  hope you enjoy it .

 

 

                    Pumpkin Bread 

 

 2/3 cup of shorting or  1 cup of veg oil 

 3 cups of sugar  however i normaly use 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of brown sugar  it`s less sweet but more rich in flavor .

 4 eggs 

1 -15 oz can of pumpkin 

2/3 cup of water 

3 1/2 cups of all purpose flour 

1 1/2  teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon ground cloves 

1 teaspoon cinnamon 

1 cup of  chopped pecans  or walnuts 

1 cup of raisins 

2 teaspoon baking soda 

 

 Blend     eggs, water, sugar, pumpkin and oil .

 

 Mix  flour,salt,nutmeg,cloves,cinnamon,raisins, pecans or walnuts, and baking soda 

then combine  both together into a large bowl  and mix slowly .

 

 Greese and flour  pans  I normaly use the old metal 1 pound round coffee cans  as it looks good however simple 1 pound loaf baking pans will work .

 

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees   

 

fill pans or coffee cans etc  3/4 full be sure  and even out the raisins nuts into each if able  .

and bake for 50 min to a hour or until a toothpick, butter knife etc  comes out clean as oven temps and  evelation can effect cooking times etc .

 

makes 3  1 pound loaves .

 

 

 This recipe is very good  I remember a few times i made this and went to a friends family  xmas dinner their grandma was pissed and asked who brought that other bread as everyone ate mine but no one ate hers  hahaha .

 

  enjoy !

 That does sound very good. Just curious though. Have you ever substituted the Raisins and pecans or walnuts for chocolate chips?  I'm a self confessed choco-aholic and just wondered how that would taste.

You could easily add in the chocolate chips--I've seen that in pumpkin bread recipes. I'd say try it, and if you don't like it, well, you've only lost out on one loaf. However, I bet it'll be a fun, tasty addition.
