Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 large bread pans.
  2. Beat sugar, pumpkin, eggs, water, applesauce, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract together in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, cloves, and ginger together in a separate bowl; stir into the pumpkin mixture until just combined. Fold walnuts into the resulting batter; pour into prepared bread pans.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pans for 5 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil to store.

I cut this recipe in half to ten servings. Instead of water, I used unsweetened Tazo vanilla rooibus tea and I doubled the amount of spices. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. I made muffins out of this instead of one loaf--I did get 12 muffins from one recipe. Baked at 350*, these were done at exactly 20 minutes. Very moist and flavorful pumpkin bread recipe.

It came out great, I used 1 cup dark brown sugar instead of white and 1/2 C. Soy flour instead of white. I also added a cup of raisins...yum yum yum
