Pumpkin Bread


I had SO much fun visiting with my stampin friends who came on Saturday for my annual Christmas Card Class!  Thank-you all for coming!!  You have a really good start on your holiday cards now!

Each guest was greeted with this when they arrived in the morning:

I had mini loaves of pumpkin bread – one for each person – just the right thing for that mid-morning hunger crisis!

I found good use for my Stampin’Up! fabric too – love the red dots!

I received this recipe from a good friend of mine – I’m pretty sure she’d let me share it with you!  It’s amazingly moist – you have to try it.


2/3 cup shortening

2 2/3 cups sugar

4 eggs

1- 16 oz. can pumpkin

2/3 cup water

3 1/3 cup flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. each cinnamon & ground cloves

2/3 cup chopped nuts & raisins (both are optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease bottoms only of 2 loaf pans.  (I of course, used 6 mini loaf pans).

Mix shortening and sugar; add eggs, pumpkin and water.  Blend in flour, soda, salt, baking powder and spices.  Stir in nuts and raisins if using.  Pour into prepared pans.

Bake 1 hour & 10 minutes (mini loaves took about 45 minutes)
