Pumpkin Bread Recipe

I was going a little stir crazy yesterday. Nasty winds, blowing snow, nothing to do. Well, plenty to do. Cleaning comes to mind since it looks like a bomb went off in this house of mine. But, why clean when I can putz around the kitchen and make an even bigger mess?

Pumpkin Bread Recipe
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Combine flour, salt, sugar and baking soda. Separately, combine pumpkin purée, oil, eggs, 1/4 cup water, and spices. Stir all ingredients together. Last but not least, stir in those yummy walnuts. Bake in a bread pan at 350 for about an hour.

* I have thoughtfully adjusted this recipe for all you normal people who don't live in the mountains. For high altitudes: Decrease sugar by 3 tablespoons, decrease baking soda by half, bake at 375 (and cross your fingers.)

Hay Kate, thanks for the poke in the arm....new post over on my Wy blog.

Love the pumpkin pictures, fall is a great time of year, problem is that I am not ready to not garden, I am used to 9 months of gardening, not 3...grin.
