Amish Pumpkin Bread

I chose to write this recipe exactly as it was written.
We attend the Annual Kansas Mennonite Relief Sale and I always try to be the first one in line for the recipe book booth. I have an incredible collection of Mennonite and Amish cookbooks from the Sale. Many of them are hand written recipes. I'm fascinated with them.

Amish Pumpkin Bread:

3 C Granulated Sugar
1 C Vegetable Oil
4 Eggs, beaten
1 C of Cooked and Mashed Pumpkin
3 1/2 C Flour
2/3 C Water
2 tap Baking Soda
2 tsp Salt, scant
1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
1 tsp each , Cinnamon, Allspice and Nutmeg

Mix Sugar, Oil and Eggs together. Add Pumpkin. Then add dry ingredients and
finally water, stirring just until mixed.
Pour batter into two (2) greased and floured 9 X 5 inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for one (1) hour.
Especially good spread with cream cheese.

Peace in the Kitchen!
