Pumpkin Bread on The Heart of the BottomsUp


3 1/2 cups all purpose flour          1/2 tsp cloves

2 tsp baking soda                            3 cups white sugar

1 1/2 tsp salt                                   1 cup veg. oil

1 tsp nutmeg                                  4 eggs

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon                       2/3 cup water

1 1/2 tsp ginger                            1 can pumpkin

1/2 tsp allspice                            Raisins and nuts, if desired

(Or, instead of ‘can’ pumpkin, you can use 2 cups of fresh or frozen pumpkin.)

Mix all dry ingredients well.  Add oil, pumpkin, eggs and water; mix until smooth. Pour into two greased loaf pans and bake at 350’F for 1 hour.  Cool enough to  pop out on to wire cooling rack to cool enough to handle.

    wow that is making me hungry for pumpkin bread, shame on you for tempting me, lol, by the way if I make it you wont be too dissppointed if I substitute half of the flour with almond flour? and substitute truvia for the sugar? and will using coconut oil ruin the taste or should I just use regular oil anyway? I am trying to stay lower carb (my diet deteroirted over the summer months shame on me) and I am trying to keep the carbs i eat the most nutrtious I can get, like fruits, veggies if I can find a way to use them beans, (limiting the grains for a while just to see how I do) limiting severly rice, most breads I will occassionally eat one slice of a whole grain bread or ezekiel bread when I can get it. or one slice of sourdough, it has less carbs per say in it. lactate dosn’t have the effects on insulin or resistance and the brain loves it.

      Oh by all means, substitute my friend! Explore all you want to have more benefits for yourself 🙂 I too am a big fan of coconut oil! Its all I use in my stir-frys. I get a huge energy boost from stir-frys, especially in the mornings. You mentioned Ezekiel bread, now you have me drooling 😉 Love that stuff!

      You’re very welcome! Hope you enjoy these loaves as much as we did!
      You should try the Ginger Beer. It goes nicely with the bread too. The guys are downing it as fast as I can make it. We are on our 3rd batch this week!
