Pumpkin Bread

I just love to bake! I made a couple of loaves of pumpkin bread a few days ago and it turned out very yummy. I love the way that it makes the house smell! The recipe is down below and is an old family favorite.

Farm Fresh Eggs...

I tend to make just a bit of a mess when sifting flour...

And maybe just a little bit of a mess when blending it all together...

Ready to eat!!

3 C Sugar
1 C Salad Oil (read: Vegetable Oil)
4 eggs, beaten
1 C pumpkin
2/3 C water
31/2 C flour
1/2 C walnuts
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp each of nutmeg, all spice and cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves

2) Sift dry ingredients into separate bowl
3) Add dry ingredients to egg mixture alternating with water
