How to Tuesday: Pumpkin Loaf

Things are busy here so just something quick today.

I've been trying to empty our fridge before the move this week. I cooked up a big batch of pumpkin (I freeze in icecube trays for ready to go meals) for BabyM and made some pumpkin loaf with the rest.


I don't enjoy pumpkin usually but this is YUMMY!!

1 1/4 C Sugar
1 3/4 C flour
1 t baking soda
1/2t cinnamon
1/2t nutmeg
1/2 t salt

Mix dry ingred together

1/2c salad oil
2 egg
1/3c water
1c cooked and mashed pumpkin

Mix wet ingreds together then add to dry mix. You can add 1/2c chopped nuts if you wish. Bake at 180 degree Celsius for 60min.


It's best still warm with lashings of butter but is lovely and moist so also keeps well.

I have this recipe handwritten in my recipe file. I think it may possibly have come from a La Leche League Family Cookbook I borrowed from my local LLL group.

This looks yummy! I can't wait to try it out! Mr. D's favorite pie is pumpkin so I bet he'd love this.
