Homemade For The Holidays

The crispness of the Fall air and the beautiful colors of the leaves remind me of the holidays and making fresh baked goods. As we move into November, there are a number of pumpkin recipes that come to mind. I am happy to be baking one of my all time favorite pumpkin recipes for this holiday bake sale. It’s moist and full of flavor.


Pumpkin Bread


2 cups fresh pumpkin puree

4 eggs

1 cup vegetable oil

2/3 cup water

3 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin spice

1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

1/4 cup cranberries (optional)


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two inch loaf pans. (Or use mini loaf pans)
