Old Pumpkin Bread!

This pumpkin bread isn't really old, but the recipe has been in my family for many years. And with good reason. It's delicious!! Serve this pumpkin bread with a light swipe of whipped cream cheese. In our family, it isn't fall until we have eaten a slice of this bread!

 Old Family Recipe 
Pumpkin Bread

3 1/2 cups Flour
2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
3 cups Sugar
1 cup Corn Oil
4 Eggs
2/3 cup Water
2 cup Pumpkin
Measure the flour into a bowl.
 Add baking soda,
and salt.
Add cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar.
Whisk everything together.
Form a well in the bowl of ingredients.
Add the eggs,
the corn oil, the water, and the pumpkin.
Mix everything together,
until every ingredient is incorporated.
Spray a loaf pan. 
Cook for 1 hour at 350 degrees. The loaf pans that 
I use are rather large. If you used the ones in the picture,
on the left, this recipe would make 3. Because I used my large pan, 
I only had enough for one other pan. Make sure to check
the bread with a toothpick. The top cooks last, so make 
sure it is done before you remove it from the oven.
Cool the bread in the pan for 15 minutes, then take
a knife or spatula around the edge, and let it sit in the 
pan until completely cool. 
It's a piece of heaven!
Enjoy!

Club Baked:Pumpkin Cheddar Muffins

Today for Club Baked we are making Pumpkin Cheddar Muffins. YRB4AHERNFUY This recipe is perfect for the beginning of fall. It even has a fall taste to it. Ok, maybe that's not possible, but it does remind me of fall, and all the good foods that are available this time of year. The strong pumpkin taste is definitely in control of the finished product. The insides are soft and fluffy like a good muffin should be, and with a smattering of soft cream cheese, oh,  it is so very good! This is an easy recipe that may just become your family favorite!
The recipe features the usual suspect list
of ingredients for baking muffins, 
except for one surprise visitor.
What is it?
Cayenne Pepper! I would have never guessed that 
these muffins contained cayenne pepper, but they do!
It makes the muffins interesting and complex!?
I don't think I have ever used that word to describe
a flavor before, but it actually fits these muffins!
Of course, you already figured out that 
there is cheddar cheese involved.
 They are gorgeous and rustic looking,
don't ya think?
Super pretty, super tasty, super muffins!

This is a great recipe. You will be glad you tried it.

Billie is our hostess this week!

The recipe we used at Club Baked is from Baked Explorations.
It is written by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito.
So far, I can't find any recipe in the book that I don't like.
We are baking our way through the book, and it is so much fun!
