Hammocks and pumpkin bread!

So today it is beautiful out! So nice that I pulled out my hammock. I don't know about you but when purchasing it I never thought, "this will be perfect for January!"

So on to pumpkin bread!
I did not get to snap any pictures of the yummy bread but it was dense and oh so very moist. I had bought a pumpkin bread kit but when I opened the bag of dry ingredients the spices we overwhelming. Unfortunately I had already mixed up my wet ingredients. So off to magical google where I searched for pumpkin bread and four eggs. I found this recipe which is what you will find modified below.

Yummy pumpkin bread

4 eggs
1(15 oz) can of pumpkin purée
2/3 cup Oil (I used olive)
1 cup Water
3 cups white sugar
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger

Mix the pumpkin, eggs, water, oil, and sugar together. Then add the dry ingredients. Mix until just blended. Pour into pans and bake.

Bake at 350 for 50 min.

I needed to let mine bake a bit longer. It might have been my pans I used 2 4x9 inch pans from Ikea. It made fun skinny tall loaves.

You might have noticed the lack of cloves. We don't use them as some family members are allergic. You can add to taste if you want.

So give it a go and see if you like it!
