You will forever love me for this recipe! Seriously, this pumpkin bread is phenomenal and people will be asking you for the recipe. The recipe comes from a college friend whose family has baked the bread for years. Ever since I got my hands on the recipe, I have made it many times during the fall and winter holidays. I just made two loaves tonight to freeze and then serve on Thanksgiving morning!


1 tsp vanilla
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 can Libby's pumpkin
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon


* Preheat oven to 350 degrees
* In a large bowl, mix the sugar and oil together
* Add the eggs and mix until yellow
* Add the canned pumpkin and mix
* In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon
* Then, add the bowl of dry ingredients to the egg/pumpkin mixture and mix.
* Add tsp of vanilla and stir again.

For Muffins:
Spray muffin tins or use liners and fill about 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Makes around 30 muffins.

For Bread:
Spray two loaf pans and divide batter evenly between the two pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes.

I made these as muffins last night and brought them to work today. Half were plain and half with cream cheese frosting. They were a hit! Thanks for the recipe!
