Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes



  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease two 9x5 loaf pans well, then dust with flour.
  2. Use your fingers and a pair of scissors to separate the pumpkin guts, making sure they'll be able to mix into the batter.
  3. Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, soda, and salt in large mixing bowl. 
  4. Add eggs, oil, water and pumpkin. Stir until you have a smooth batter.
  5. If using pecans, you can mix the nuts in now, or sprinkle them on top once your pour you batter into the loaf pans.
  6. Pour into prepared pans. Bake 1 hour, and check for doneness by inserting a wooden skewer into the center of the loaf. If it comes out clean, your loaves are done. If not, bake them longer, checking every 5 minutes.
  7. Cool slightly in the pans (about 10 minutes) them take out of pans to let them cool on a rack.


Approximate cost/serving: This bread is pretty affordable, especially if you buy your flour and sugar in bulk like I do.  Two loaves cost me around $2 to make, and I slice each one into 10 pieces.  So it comes out to only 10 cents a slice!

Vegetarian: This does have eggs, but it's meatless!
