hadley’s pumpkin bread
My friend Hadley gave me this recipe about 8 years ago and it’s still my favorite pumpkin bread. Granted I add chocolate chips to it, but still! The house smells great when you make it and I like the spices that give it someextra taste.
Pumpkin Bread (with or without chocolate chips!)- makes 2 loaves
grease and flour 2 bread pans
3 C. sugar
1 C. veggie oil
15 oz. can of pumpkin filling
mix these three ingredients together
Add 4 already beaten eggs to above mixture
Then, mix together:
3 and 1/2 C. flour, 2 tsp. baking soda, 2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. all spice, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. cloves
Add the second mixture alternately with 2/3 C. water to the first mixture. Add chocolate chips if you would like- I used mini ones since I had them in my pantry.
Bake at 350 for about an hour or until toothpick comes out mostly dry. Just found this recipe online- firstone on google- must be popular! http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/downeast-maine-pumpkin-bread/detail.aspx – this one says makes 3 loaves but I used a standard bread pan and I would go with 2!
