Addicting Pumpkin Bread


I just got home from a great trip to visit my parents in Colorado. My mom is who taught me how to cook and has some fantastic recipes for the fall. This first one is for a pumpkin bread so moist you won't believe it. It is delicious for breakfast as well as for dessert with a scoop of ice cream. This is an easy recipe and makes 2 loaves, so make one for yourself and use the other as a gift.

Pumpkin Bread

4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup cold water
1 lb canned pumpkin
2 1/2 cups of sifted flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp each nutmeg, cinnamon, ground clove

Mix ingredients together until smooth using a hand mixer or stand up mixer. Fill two loaf pans about half way up the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/4 hours. Enjoy!

My mom also told me that these freeze nicely. I like to cut a piece off and stick it in the microwave until warm and then serve with a pat of butter. Totally decadent, but so great on a crisp fall morning.
