Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 Loaves
You may need to bake your bread longer than the recipe says, which is fine and normal. I suggest 10 minutes more at a time.
  • 1 (15 ounce) can Pumpkin Puree or just about 2 cups from a larger can
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 cup Vegetable Oil
  • ⅔ cup Water
  • 1½ cups White Sugar
  • 1½ cups Dark Brown Sugar
  • 3½ cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9-inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger and pumpkin pie spice. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Pour into the prepared pans.
  3. Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven but could possibly take longer, add 10 minutes at a time. Loaves are done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
