This is a pumpkin bread that my old boss Sally Veurink (if you see her, tell her how delicious her bread was)made for Christmas one year. I asked her for the recipe and every year since made it to hand out at Christmas. It is the moistest pumpkin bread I have ever eaten in my life and everyone LOVES it.

  1. Mix sugar, oil and eggs.
  2. Then add rest of ingredients.
  3. Personally, I mix the first three well then add the rest and mix just enough (not barely mixed like you mix brownies but not whipped like eggs whites)
  4. Bake at 350 degres for 1 hour. Less for mini loaves- check at 45 minutes.
  5. this makes 3 large loaves or like I do- 8 small loaves to give out at Christmas.

Just made this today. The kitchen smells delicious!!
I made 1 large loaf, 4 mini loaves, 6 large muffins. My large loaf caved in the center while cooling. But it looks great. Will eat it tonight!! Thanks for sharing.

I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could. I made 7 delicious mini-loaves and two "canned" jars for DD. This bread has delicious flavor & fantastic texture. My house also smells terrific too. My coworkers are going to love me tomorrow, I will bring several loaves to share in the break room. Thanks for posting missjulie! Made for a fellow Michigander (who used to babysit my nephews!) for PAC, Fall 2008

This was great, super moist and great pumpkin flavor. Will make it again, but cut it in half, we have enough pumpkin bread in the freezer to last us to Thanksgiving! Large recipe.
