Ingredients

  • 3 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil/applesauce
  • 4 cups white sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cloves

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 3-9x5 loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin, oil, sugar, and eggs until well-incorporated. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Gradually pour into the pumpkin batter a little bit at a time, stirring after each addition until the mixture is well-blended.
  3. Divide batter evenly between the loaf pans and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle.
  4. Allow to cool completely in pans before removing the bread. Run a knife around the edges of the bread in the pan to loosen. Store any remaining bread in plastic wrap.
