This is one of our favorites, so far, this season:

Spiced Pumpkin Bread
From Bon Appétit

Spiced Pumpkin Bread

Ingredients
3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 16-ounce can solid pack pumpkin
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans. Beat sugar and oil in large bowl to blend. Mix in eggs and pumpkin. Sift flour, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, salt and baking powder into another large bowl. Stir into pumpkin mixture in 2 additions. Mix in walnuts, if desired.

2. Divide batter equally between prepared pans. Bake until tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Transfer to racks and cool 10 minutes. Using sharp knife, cut around edge of loaves. Turn loaves out onto racks and cool completely.

Makes 2 loaves.

Big mamma59 has said she likes to cook, and there may be others who do, too. Just thinking. If anyone has any questions about cooking, maybe someone else can answer them on here. Holiday COOKING can be fun. Almost as much fun as EATING the holiday foods.

I don't know if this will work on your recipe, but I double the baking soda in mine. It gets more air bubbles and not as hard. Easier on old teeth,
