It is Thursday already and the shop is undergoing some BIG rearranging. Hopefully with the Oktoberfest advertising and some wonderful fall specials I can get some good sales this weekend and next. I have been busy trying out new pumpkin recipes for the Pumpkin cook-off and have one to share. It turned out great and was pretty easy.
Pumpkin bread recipe with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Cook Time: 1 hour
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 can (16 ounces) pumpkin purée
1 cup vegetable oil
Preparation:Grease and flour two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, stir together the pumpkin and oil.
Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; add pumpkin mixture. Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 1 hour, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
Makes 2 loaves of pumpkin bread.
I am not quite sure if this is the one I will go with yet, I have a couple more to try over the next week before that most important decision is made LOL
Well, back to my cleaning and painting. The Dress-Me Welcome Frinds need pumpkin outfits painted!
