Terree’s Favorite Family Recipe
My Mom’s Pumpkin Bread
4 egg yolks
1 16oz can of pumpkin
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
1 3/4 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Grease and flour the bottom & sides of three 9×5” loaf pans.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, mix the egg yolks, pumpkin, oil and water. Add sugar and mix again.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and stir until combined.
Pour batter evenly into the three loaf pans.
Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean in the center.
Cool on wire racks for 20 minutes, then remove from pans.
Note: I sometimes add mini chocolate chips to the mix – it’s delicious, too!
