Pink Saturday Recipe!!

Happy Pink Saturday!!!

For you today..........

a wonderful Fall recipe for:

World's Best Pumpkin Bread

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes

4 eggs
2-1/3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 - 15 ounce can solid pack pumpkin
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1-3/4 teaspoons baking soda
2-3/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon*
3/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg*
3/4 teaspoon ground cloves*
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice*
1 cup chopped raw nuts (walnuts, pecans, etc), lightly toasted
1/3 cup golden raisins**
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preparation:Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease two loaf pans or 24 muffin cups.

Combine the eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin in a large bowl, and stir until smooth.
In a medium bowl, mix the second set of ingredients with a wire whisk. Add the nuts and raisins**. Add to the egg mixture and mix thoroughly. Fill the loaf pans or muffin cups with the batter.
Mix the last 2 ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle over bread loaves or muffin batter.

Bake the bread at 375 degrees F for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or the muffins for 35 to 40 minutes. When the bread is done, a toothpick inserted in the center will come out clean.

Yields 2 loaves or 24 muffins.***

Notes:* You may substitute 4 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice for the starred ingredients. Be sure to note that you still need cinnamon for the topping.

** If you don't care for raisins, add 1/3 cup more nuts instead.

***I've only made the loaves of bread so I don't know if this makes 24 small or large muffins.

If you prefer large muffins: fill the cups just to the top with batter. If you have any empty muffins cups, fill half full with water.

Hoping you will try it, and LOVE it!!
