Thank you for the recipe link.
I actually had already done a bunch of looking in my old cookbooks for different pumpkin recipes and I think I am going to make several loaves of this to have for the holidays. I often make up various sweet breads this time of year to give to friends and family as Christmas gifts. I get them all cooked, wrap them up in foil, and then freeze the loaves in zip lock bags until I am ready to start using them for family dinners and for gifts during the holiday season.
I found this recipe in a really old Fannie Farmer cookbook.
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 C sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 C pumpkin puree
1/2 C vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 C water
1/4 tsp each nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice
1/2 C walnuts (I think I am going to use pecans or hazelnuts instead since I have lots of both at the moment))
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda. Mix the pumpkin, oil, eggs, water, and spices together, then combine with the dry ingredients, but do not mix too thoroughly. Stir in the nuts. Pour into a well buttered loaf pan (I use a 9x5x3). Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 50-60 minutes.
