I am roasting a pumpkin. Then I will use it to make this recipe. This is important because pumpkins appear in my house from time to time and I never know what to do with them except carve faces into them, let them sit outside and watch them turn into slime. I am roasting the pumpkin now, which means I haven’t tried the recipe yet, perhaps you noticed. Have no fear, it comes from a very reliable source. Heather can be trusted.
Ingredients
  • 3 C sugar (I [that’s Heather] use half this amount)
  • 1 C veg oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 C water
  • 16 oz (2 C) cooked pumpkin
  • 2 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1 tsp each cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice
  • 3 1/2 C flour
  • 2 tsp b. soda
  • 1/2 tsp b. powder
Instructions
  1. Mix sugar, oil, eggs; add water.
  2. Beat in pumpkin and spices.
  3. Mix all dry ingredients in separate bowl then add to pumpkin mixture and mix until just blended.
  4. Pour into two greased loaf pans and bake at 350 for 1 hour or more.
  5. You can add nuts or raisins or dried cranberries to this recipe as well.
