Pumpkin Spice Bread

 
 
 
When I was a kid, the official sign of fall was when my momma made pumpkin bread. It always made me so mad that we couldn't eat it straight out of the oven. Normally she would save it, and we would get one slice along with an apple or banana for breakfast.
 
My favorite was warming the pumpkin bread in the microwave and serving some chilled applesauce over the top. The perfect mix of textures. It just brings back those sweet fall memories.

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water

Directions:
Combine in a bowl all the dry ingredients. Combine in a separate bowl; pumpkin, oil, water. Beat eggs and add to wet mixture. Make a well in flour. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined. Do not over mix, finished bread will be chewy. Pour into two greased and floured 9x5 inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Test with toothpick.
