Perfect Pumpkin Bread, a pictoral voyage

First off, gather all of your supplies and helpers. And your camera. You are confident that this will be the recipe and photo essay that will make pioneer woman weep and quit blogging. I've bolded the most important part for your convenience.

Needed Supplies:
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1/2 C Applesauce
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 C white sugar
  • 1 C brown Sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 7x3 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, 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.

Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven. Loaves are done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean

It's okay if you don't have toothpics and have to use a shiskabob skewer instead. Just be sure to insert it in the MIDDLE. Or else it will look like this when you try to dump it out on the rack.

At least the house smells good, right? I can hear PWs laughs from a thousand miles away.

Thanks for the recipe! try it with chocolate chips... it was delicious! oh, and i think your recipe was missing a few things- the oil does not have a measurement and it doesn't say when to add a few of the spices or something, but either way i figured it out and it was really good!
