1 large can of pumpkin or two small 15oz cans ( don’t be afraid to use some of your pumpkins from the garden)
3 cups of organic sugar ( 1 ½ organic sugar 1 ½ honey works too!)
1 cup of light olive oil or butter
4 ½ cups of unbleached flour (you can use whole wheat or go half white & half whole wheat. Whatever your heart wishes!)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
4 tsp. soda
Bake @ 350 for 1 hour
Makes 3 loaves of pumpkin bread.
Simple & Sweet.
Note: I always add toasted nuts and chocolate chips to the top, and slightly pat down before baking.
My Great Granny always made simple food, and boy was it good. She lived through the depression, and really new how to use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.
