I tried this recipe for the first time last weekend (with the very excellent help of Baby A, I might add). Melding together two quintessential flavors of this wonderful holiday season, it's definitely a keeper!
3 c. sugar
1 c. vegetable oil
2/3 c. water
1 - 15oz. can pumpkin puree
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground allspice
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground cloves
3 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Preheat oven to 350*. Lightly grease two 9x5" loaf pans.
In large mixing bowl, combine sugar, oil, and eggs; beat until smooth. Add water and beat until well blended. Stir in pumpkin, ginger, allspice, and cinnamon.
In medium bowl, combine flour, soda, salt, and baking powder. Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and blend just until all ingredients are mixed. Divide batter between prepared pans.
Bake in preheated oven about an hour, until toothpick comes out clean.
I went heavy on the spices, and this was ahhhh-mazing!!! (Just look past the gallon of oil and five pounds of sugar...it's the holidays!)
