I’ve never made bread before in my life! Imagine my surprise when it turned out beautifully!! Try this foolproof recipe and make everyone believe that you are a professional baker:)


3 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups white sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground allspice
1 1/2 tsps salt
2 tsps baking soda
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
1 cup packed Farmer’s Market Pumpkin
4 eggs


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 1 large loaf pan. Sift together the dry ingredients. Combine the vegetable oil, water, canned pumpkin and eggs. Slowly add dry ingredients to egg mixture, (about 1/2 cup at a time) and mix until blended. Pour mixture into loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and 30 – 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and top of bread is browned. Cool bread in loaf pan on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove bread by running a knife around the inside and turning loaf upside down to dislodge bread. Cool completely. Serve warm with butter.
