Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

The pumpkin theme continues with this yummy number. Now, this one is a first time recipe and the cakes are cooling on the rack as I write this, so an update will be in order later.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

1 can pumpkin
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
3 cups white sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground ginger

1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. Grease and flour 7x3 inch loaf pans.
2. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin, eggs, oil, water and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Pour into the prepared pans.
3. Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven. Loaves are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Now we tweaked this recipe just slightly. We used a couple of bundt pans and 1 tbs of pumpkin pie allspice instead of all the separate ingredients.

I'll let you know how it tastes...

Update: This didn't come out so good. Tasted great but didn't cook all the way through. Should of cooked them about 30 minutes longer.
