PUMPKIN BREAD


~ Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library

2/3 c. butter
2 2/3 c. sugar
4 eggs
16 oz. can pumpkin
2/3 c. water
3 1/3 c. flour
2 t. baking soda
1 1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. cloves
2/3 c. chopped nuts
2/3 c. raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9x5x3-in loaf pans. Mix butter and sugar, then stir in eggs, pumpkin and water. Blend in flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and cloves. Stir in nuts and raisins. Pour into pans. Bake about 70 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Makes two loaves.

Notes: I love this fresh out of the oven or cold, plain or toasted, with butter or apple butter. It’s so good! Sometimes I make a double batch and pop some loaves in the freezer. We always skip the nuts and raisins.
