Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread



1 15 ounce can pumpkin puree

4 eggs

1 cup vegetable oil

2/3 cup water

3 cups white sugar

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp. baking soda

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp. cloves

1/4 tsp. ground ginger


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two bread loaf pans.


In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin, eggs, oil, water and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Stire the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Pour into the prepared pans.


Bake for a little over an hour (depends on your elevation) in the preheated oven. Loaves are done when toothpick inserted comes out clean.


*** To give the bread an extra fattening and yummy touch, I poked holes in the top of the loaves with a toothpick and poured in a mixture of melted butter combined with cinnamon and sugar. Yum!
