This is from my grandmother, Meam.

SERVINGS: 1 loaf

Preheat oven to 325.


3 1/2 cup flour

3 1/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cloves

Put the above ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Make a hole in the center and add:

4 eggs

1 cup cooking oil 

2 cups pumpkin

1 tsp vanilla


Mix well and add 1 cup nuts (optional).  Pour into 3 loaf pans, greased and floured.  Bake at 325 for 1 hour.  

Is there anything finer than pumpkin?!



I have used cooking spray and flour in my pans, and it still comes out fine.
