If any of you have ever had Bob Evan's pumpkin bread, this comes really close to matching it in flavor and texture. Really moist, not too sweet, yummy!
3 1/2 c. pumpkin puree
1/2 vegetable oil
2 2/3 c. sugar
3 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
*Preheat the oven to 350*F. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans.
*In a large bowl, mix the pumpkin, oil, sugar and eggs.
*In a seperate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Stir into the pumpkin mix until blended.
*Divide the mix evenly into the 2 loaf pans.
*Bake for 55-60 minutes. The top of the loaf will spring back when lightly pressed.
**The recipe I followed didn't have a measurement for the baking powder, but did mention it in the directions. After researching, I came up with many recipes that don't use baking powder, and many that used the same amount as baking soda. I compromised with 1/2 the amount, but feel free to adjust as you desire.
**Add-ins: Chocolate chips, dried cranberries, cinnamon chips - Yum!
