Moist, delicious pumpkin bread. Fantastic for Autumn. Sometimes I bake fresh pie pumpkins and scrape the innards for this recipe. You can also use 5 mini loaf pans (disposable size) for gift giving. These will bake on a cookie sheet for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. My mom gave me this recipe years ago.
Beat sugar with oil until blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating mixture until light and fluffy. Beat in pumpkin.
Sift all dry ingredients together 3 times and mix into the pumpkin mixture.
Pour into the loaf pans and bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let stand in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in refrigerator. Freezes well.
