Ron’s World Famous Pumpkin Spice Bread


1 can solid pack pumpkin or equal home made

1 cup oil

4 eggs, lightly beaten                                           Pumpkin Spice Bread

3 cups sugar

3 ½ cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground nutmeg

½ tsp. ground cloves

½ tsp. allspice

½ cup water

In a large bowl combine sugar, oil and eggs. Add pumpkin and mix well.

Combine dry ingredients; add to pumpkin mixture alternating with water a little at a time for even mixture.

Raisins, walnuts, pecans all optional (I like walnuts)

We pour into individual loaf pans, but the recipe calls for 2 greased 9x5x3. Bake at 350 deg. 60 to 70 min. for big loaf pans….a little less for individual pans depending on your oven. (or 6 mini loaf pans)

Cool for ten minutes then loosen sides and place on cooling rack. Try to keep your hands off for however many cooling minutes it takes for a clean slice….Toppings: Ice Cream, whipped cream, your pleasure

Bake the individual pans and give one to each of your friends, then be prepared to bake them the rest of your life.
