How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter your containers well.
  • Sift the dry ingredients together into a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add the eggs, oil, pumpkin and water. Beat thoroughly. It's easier to get all the lumps out if you use an electric mixer. Stir in the walnuts with a wooden spoon.
  • Pour the batter into the containers, filling each only half to two-thirds full. Bake for 60-90 minutes, depending on the sizes of your containers. If you're using a very small container, start checking much sooner. The bread is done when a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.
  • Cool about ten minutes, then loosen the edges of the bread with a knife, and turn out of the pans to cool the rest of the way on a rack. For baking containers, you can use a loaf pan, metal cans, or whatever. I usually use 1-pound coffee cans, and it takes three of them. If you want tiny loaves, you could probably use soup cans.
  • NOTES:
  • At Christmas time I Like giving the little tins of this bread as presents. I also take it backpacking, because it's pretty resistant to being squashed (and tastes fine even when it is). Yield: 3 1-pound loaves.
  • * I think the nuts are important in this recipe. Unless you absolutely hate them, leave them in.
  • * It's not necessary, but you can serve some good cream cheese with it to spread on the slices if you like.
