How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Grease and flour three 9x5-inch loaf pans or (8) 7 ½ x 3-inch loaf pans.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin, oil, sugar, vanilla and eggs.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
  • Stir dry ingedients into the pumpkin mixture until well blended. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • The top of the loaf should spring back when lightly pressed.
  • Glaze:
  • Mix juice of ½ orange with powdered sugar until desired consistency.
  • Drizzle over warm loaves.
  • When baking in small individual loaves, reduce baking time to approx. 40 minutes.
  • *If using walnuts, roast them in a dry frying pan, or a 350° oven for approx. 3-5 min. to release the oils for a tastier nut.

    I suppose you could, I just haven't tried it. The canned is so easy...maybe if I had a pumpkin!
