November 16: Pumpkin Bread

This is a wonderful recipe for pumpkin bread that comes from a fabulous cook in my church, Sherrie, and is in our church cookbook.

1/3 c oil
5 eggs
1 (16 oz) can pumpkin
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 c flour
2 c sugar (reg or instant)
2 (3 oz) pkg vanilla pudding mix
1 c chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 350. Mix oil, eggs, and pumpkin in mixing bowl Sift together flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda. Add to pumpkin mixture and blend well. Stir in pudding mix and nuts. (I often add ½ pkg of chocolate chips as well.) Bake for 1 hour. Makes two large loaves, or approximately 5 mini loaves.
