    Pumpkin Bread

    One of the things my dad did every year at Christmas was to make loaves of pumpkin bread to give out as gifts to his friends/coworkers and such.

    As a kid, it was something I really, really liked and thought I would recreate it for my wife and her family.

    Here's the recipe I used:

    Ingredients
    3 cups sugar
    1 cup vegetable oil
    4 eggs, lightly beaten
    16 ounces canned unsweetened pumpkin
    3 1/2 cups flour
    2 teaspoons salt
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 teaspoon allspice
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon cloves
    2/3 cup water

    Directions
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour 2 9 by 5 loaf pans. Stir together sugar and oil. Stir in eggs and pumpkin. Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl. Blend dry ingredients and water into wet mixture, alternating. Divide batter between two loaf pans. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool.

    Here's the loaves just out of the oven:



    And the final result:



    The bread was good, but way too sweet. The next time we make this I'm going to reduce the sugar to 1-1/2 cups with 1/2 cup of honey.

    Having said that, the cloves, nutmeg and the cinnamon were able to break past the sugar to make their presence appreciated.

    Warm with butter, it's hard to beat.

    I always reduce sugar in American recipes by about two-thirds. They tend to ruin dishes with too much salt too.

    In this area of "sweetened" breads, I rather appreciated a decent banana bread.
    Quite nice if done right.
