Pumpkin Spice Bread

Printable Recipe


3 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup applesauce
4 eggs
1 15 oz can pumpkin (or 2 cups homemade puree)
3 1/2 cups flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon
2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. cloves
1 t. allspice
1/2 cup water

Combine the sugar, oil and eggs.  Add pumpkin and mix well.  Combine the dry ingredients; add to the pumpkin mixture alternately with water, beating well after each addition.  Pour into two greased loaf pans.  Bake at 350 for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.

For muffins, bake for 25 minutes.  Makes ~36 muffins.


Holly's Notes:
The original recipe came from The Amish Family Cookbook.  I had just put up several batches of pumpkin puree and my husband asked for some pumpkin bread to take to his Home Teaching families for church.  I figured I'd try a new recipe since I really don't have a tried or true pumpkin bread recipe.  I searched several cookbooks before finding this recipe.  It came together easily and smelled absolutely divine while it was baking.  It was delicious, although the second time I made it, I did a 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup oil instead of the original 1 cup of oil and I doubled the spices and I did muffins instead.  We prefer the muffins to the bread and the doubled spices was perfect.  This version of the recipe reflects those changes.
