Hi @homedecor1. I just made this pumpkin bread yesterday. It’s my go to recipe that never fails.

 

2 cups pumpkin purée 

3 cups sugar

1 cup canola oil

2/3 cup water

4 eggs

3 1/3 cups flour

2 tsp baking soda

1.5 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon 

1 tsp nutmeg

 

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in bowl....set aside

Mix together sugar, pumpkin, oil, eggs and water until combined

Add dry ingredients, mix until combined

 

Spray 2 9x5 loaf pans, bake at 350 45-60 minutes.

 

i have found this makes quite a large batch. I use two 8x4 loaf pans and three mini pans. I bake the small pans approx 20-30 minutes and the larger pans about 45 minutes. It’s a great recipe. I know 3 cups of sugar sounds like a lot, but it makes a lot of bread. Hope you enjoy it.

@homedecor1 Wanted to let you know I changed the amount of oil in the recipe. The original recipe called for 2/3 cup shortening so I would use 2/3 cup safflower. Today when I looked in the cookbook it was crossed out with 1 cup oil penciled in. It was DH's writing so I asked him why he wrote down 1 cup when the recipe called for 2/3 cup. He really did not have an answer. It says online to replace same amount of solid shortening as the liquid oil. The recipe turns out both ways since DH made it with 1 cup oil. I told him he was just adding more fat. LOL!!! It's more moist with the 1 cup oil & has to cook longer. I made it today with 2/3 cup safflower oil & it's fine. I did edit the recipe I posted. I cooked the smaller pans 50 mins & the larger 60 mins.
