Spiced Pumpkin Bread

Spiced Pumpkin Bread

Makes 2 loafs

-2 cups all purpose flour

-3 cups sugar

-1/2 cup oil

-1 large egg beaten

-16 ounces pure canned pumpkin

-1 tbsp. lemon juice

-1 tsp cinnamon

-1/4 tsp nutmeg

-1/4 tsp ginger

-1 cup water

-2 tbs baking powder

Set oven to 350, grease sides and bottom of 2 loaf pans

Combine sugar, egg, lemon juice,water, and oil in bowl

In another bowl sift all dry ingredients together

Add wet mix to dry mix all at once, combine until lumpy

Fold in pumpkin until mixed completely

Bake for about 1.5 hours, or until toothpick pulls clean

Let bread cool COMPLETELY in loaf pans on rack

I usually wrap both loaves in tin foil once they've cooled and throw them in the freezer. I slice the amount I want off the loaf while still frozen, and either nuke or toast it until warm. This is awesome with coffee in the morning. I'm thinking about soaking one in rum for the holidays, the bread is very very dense.
