Makes about 2 loaves
3 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 (15-oz.) can pumpkin
1 cup canola oil
4 large eggs
2/3 cup water
Preheat oven to 350.
Stir together flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin, canola oil, eggs and water. Add to dry ingredients, stirring until just moistened.
Spoon batter into 2 greased and floured 9x5-inch loafpans.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour). Enjoy!
Okay, so this dish is everyone's favorite -- even if you don't particularly enjoy pumpkin. I bake this for lots of things, and people who don't like pumpkin are always hesitant to try it but end up coming back for 4th's, 5th's, and 6th's!
Please comment how yours came out and how you liked them. :)
