How to Make Incredible Pumpkin Bread~
- In a large bowl, mix together oil, pumpkin, sugars, pudding mixes, cinnamon,
and salt. Slightly beat the eggs, and mix into the batter.
- . Mix in flour and
baking soda until just combined. Stir in nuts, if desired.
- Spread batter
into two greased and floured 9 x 5 inch loaf pans (or 8 mini-loaf pans -
they all baked well together in the oven at the same time!). Bake at 325
degrees for 1 hour, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out
clean. Makes 2 loaves.
- For 11-4-04 teacher conferences, Dori used 2 instant butterscotch puddings
and added one pkg of dried craisins to batter AFTERWARDS, then pouring into
8 mini-loaf pans. Baked these at 350? F for 45 minutes - test with a raw
spaghetti noodle piece.
