Amish Pumpkin Bread (Best Ever!!!!!!)
Look no further! This is the best pumpkin bread I ever had! It is soul satisfying and absolutely comforting. I am so excited about this bread. I will make it forever. It is so delicious I have made it several times in the past week to give to friends. I highly recommend this one to all.
I would serve it for breakfast, brunch or even your Thanksgiving Feast, right next to the corn muffins and milk rolls. This recipe comes from Amish Country, need I say more. Try it and I know you will love it as much as I do. You must be patient and watch that you do not over cook or undercook. After an hour keep a close eye. I bake my bread in my oven up to 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
3 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs beaten
1 lb. canned pumpkin
3 ½ cups flour
2/3 cup water
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. ground clove
1 tsp. each cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg
Mix sugar, oil and eggs together. Add pumpkin. Then add dry ingredients and finally water, stirring just until mixed. Pour batter into two greased and floured 9x5 loaf pans or I use a deep dish 10 x 12 disposable aluminum pan (double pan it). Bake at 350 degrees for one hour and 15 minutes. Do the toothpick test. The tooth pick will have a little gooeyness on it. I am not sure if gooeyness is a real word, but I think you get the idea. Especially good, spread with cream cheese.
