I saw a baking pan in an old magazine and loved the way it looked. My honey went on-line and got it for me. What a nice treat and what a lovely bread it makes. The pan is by Nordic Ware and the recipe for this bread was included on the pan label.
(Nordic Ware recipe)
1 (16 oz) can of pumpkin (I used just about 2 cups of home made baked pumpkin mashed up.
1 3/4 C sugar
2/3 C vegetable oil
1 t vanilla
3 C flour
2 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmet
1/8 t ground cloves (omitted this ‘cause I didn’t have any)
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 C raisins or craisins (next time I think I’ll add unsweetened flaked coconut)
Heat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour pan (I used Baker’s Joy spray that has the flour in it.) Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs. Blend well. Stir in remaining ingredients except raisins/craisins. Mix until blended. Stir in the raisins. Pour batter into prepared pan (there’s enough for TWO pans.) Bake for 65 to 75 minutes, until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.
Yum, so good.
