A couple of weeks ago I posted a recipe for one of my favorite pumpkin breads. It is my favorite for everyday, but today I am posting my favorite holiday pumpkin bread. This bread is really good but not very healthy. This bread is a treat. It is more dessert and cake like.
I have been making this recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas for years. I came from a 1998 Taste of Home magazine. We love this recipe.
Delicious Pumpkin Bread
- 5 eggs
- 1-1/4 cups vegetable oil
- 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 packages (3 ounces each) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Add oil and pumpkin; beat until smooth. Combine remaining ingredients and gradually beat into pumpkin mixture. Pour batter into 2 large loaf pans. Bake at 325° for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
