  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c vegetable oil
  • 2/3 c h20
  • 3 c white sugar
  • 3 1/2 c flour
  • 2 t baking soda
  • 1 1/2 t salt
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 t nutmeg

  • 1 1/2 c raisins or 2/3 bag chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350, grease two loaf pans (9×5)

2. Mix pumpkin, eggs, oil, h20 and sugar in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger.  Stir dry ingredients into pumpkin mixture until just blended.  Add raisins (or chocolate chips) and pour evenly into pans.

3. Set up camp in front of the oven and salivate.

5.  Hide in the closet and eat big hunks of it (with butter slathered on) while howling gloatingly at the moon.

  1. This whole time I thought that was a dog! I guess the rate at which our pumpkin bread was disappearing should have been my first tip off.

    My input on this recipe: the golden raisin version is better than the choco chip one, although both are fabulous. You definitely should try both before making your own mind. Then try them both again. And again.

  2. Raisins are made to be eaten as a snack. Or maybe sprinkled on a salad – but never baked into something. My siblings and I have spent years, picking raisins out of perfectly good cinnamon rolls, cookies and quick breads. We have other food problems but I won’t go into those. Chocolate chips are good in all quick breads and cookies. Rebecca is so knowledgeble. This is serious business. YUMMY! love mamap
