it's friday!

Some weeks don't call for cookies.  Some weeks call for pumpkin bread.  (My friend, Amy, makes it the best.)  Always moist.  Always delicious.  The recipe is out of a city favorite of ours.  

Pumpkin Bread:

4 eggs ::  2/3 cup water :: 1 cup crisco oil :: 1 can pumpkin pie filling (I used 1 can pumpkin) ::  3 1/2 cups flour ::  3 cups sugar ::  2 tsp baking soda ::  1 1/2 tsp salt ::  1 tsp cinnamon :: 1 tsp nutmeg  ::  cloves to liking ::  nuts optional

Beat eggs; add oil, water and pie mix.  Add dry ingredients.  Mix well.  Bake in greased and floured loaf pans for 350° for 1 hour.  (Check after 45 min.)  Makes 2 large and 1 small or 6 small loaves.  

I've cast on for the Burton Bear Cowl.  Isn't it just the cutest?!  But, I am making the adult size.  For me.  Don't worry, it doesn't have ears. :)

Happy weekend, friends!

  2. Pumpkin bread is comfort food. We tried pumpkin bundt cake and in truth, it was okay. I didn't like it as much as pumpkin bread with chocolate chips.
